Future education trends--what does industry want

AUTHORS: Enders, M.S., Highsmith, R.P., Simon, G.

ABSTRACT: Faced with a continuing decline in geoscience and economic geology education, industry will have to develop their own internal training programs similar to what has happened in the oil business. To be effective, industry will have to rely on universities to produce quality graduates with a strong fundamental background in science or engineering and geology regardless of whether this background includes classic economic geology training. Industry will select students for employment with a broad background and a potential to excel in a variety of areas, and who are critical thinkers with ability to integrate, interpret, and predict in 3D and 4D from multiple datasets.

KEYWORDS: economic geology, geoscience education, future
