Earth science students are invited to join us for a seminar on professional registration and careers in geoscience.

Presentation Topics

First, the Engineers and Geoscientists BC Student Program Coordinator will give a brief overview of the registration process to become a geoscientist-in-training (GIT) or professional geoscientist (P.Geo.). Afterwards, geoscientists will present on working in different aspects of BC's geoscience industry.

This event is meant for University of British Columbia Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences students. However, students from other departments, Engineers and Geoscientists BC members, members-in-training, and the public are welcome to attend. Online registration is required for this event.
