Watershed Research, Training and Outreach Program
This program offers a wide-range of courses designed to engage students and citizens from varied backgrounds. The program will excel with use of unique field facilities and strong stakeholder partnerships.
Courses offered under the auspices of the Centre bridge the gap between theory and real-world realities for undergraduate and graduate students. The Centre also provides opportunities for professional development in such fields as geology, environmental engineering and biology. Continued education will further the knowledge of water-related areas that are gained in traditional education programs.
A collaborative student-industry partnership program allows students to experience real water-related projects such as energy generation, watershed restoration, dam construction, shoreline protections and floodplain mapping.
