Human activity can have complex and far-reaching effects on our fragile environment, creating a need for insightful environmental research and stewardship. In the 21st century, identifying environmental problems and developing and implementing sensible and practical solutions will increasingly depend upon research innovation and collaboration between industry, government, academics and communities. To this end, Western has created the Centre for Environment and Sustainability (CES), an interdisciplinary initiative supported by the Faculty of Science (host faculty), Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Social Science, and other contributing faculties. The CES is home to the Undergraduate Environmental Science program, the Masters in Environment and Sustainability program and the Collaborative Environment and Sustainability program
This annual event will feature presentations by fourth year students registered in the Faculty of Science who are returning to Western following the internship work term. There will be a total of 69 presentations delivered in concurrent sessions organized by discipline. Presentations will take place in the Physics and Astronomy Building, Rm 106 between 9:00 - 1:30 pm. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Faculty of Science Internship Program.
For the second consecutive year, Western joined The University of British Columbia as one of only two Canadian universities profiled in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 332 Green Colleges: 2014 Edition. (Read More)
