Study in Sudbury, a place world-renowned for its successful re-greening and innovation in environmental remediation, for example in the emerging field of biomining.

Complement your in-class learning and get real-world experience with great summer job opportunities with mining companies, federal, and provincial geological surveys. Focus your interests with three summer field schools, and integrate science disciplines such as geology, mineralogy, chemistry and biology.
