CEGS resides within an educational and research institution, and the practicing and furthering of these activities is certainly a major objective of the Center. The Product of these efforts is given below, divided into general topics. The Center officially started January 2014, however activities were in action before that time.
Discovery is the emphasis of products. PhD and MS degrees have been awarded. A one year Certificate of Entrepreneurial Geosciences is anticipated soon, and applicants may proceed.
