June 23, 2011

With funding from NSERC's Collaborative Research and Training Experience Program, the University of Alberta has established the Land Reclamation International Graduate School, which will begin accepting students within a year. The graduate school will eventually have about 3 dozen MSc and PhD students and post-doctoral fellows examining the science, as well as the socio-economic and regulatory issues, surrounding land reclamation. The school will create new courses, make minor adjustments to others, and use video conferencing extensively to fulfil the requirements of an international graduate school. uAlberta ExpressNews
