October 11, 2019: Drs. Zhaoshan Chang and Nicole Hurtig attended the SEG 2019 conference in Santiago, Chile manning a booth representing CMRS and promoting our Professional Master Program in Mineral Exploration. The meeting presented a great opportunity to converse with working professionals and students from different countries and backgrounds. Our initiative to newly offer modular courses and certificates in the Professional Master Program enabling degree-completion as a part-time student in the on-job mode has received an overwhelming positive response from conference participants. Over 80 people have singed up for more information on the programs and research initiatives at Mines. We are very excited and hopeful to welcome new students into our PM Program next Fall and greatly diversify our student population.
