A pioneering program aimed at training scientists and engineers to deal with a broad range of environmental problems is being conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Graduate students will embark on a new five-year doctoral program in environmental science and engineering supported by a National Science Foundation grant. An interdisciplinary educational experiment that cuts across traditional departmental boundaries, the project is under the direction of Willard F. Libby, Director of UCLA's Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics.
