The structure and movements of our planet shape our existence, from the life-giving foundations of soil and water to the life-threatening occurrences of earthquakes and volcanoes. EAS is designed for students who are fascinated by the Earth and want to understand it. EAS students get hands-on field experience though both courses and research opportunities with Tech faculty.
