The University of Rochester has established a new undergraduate program in geomechanics. The program, which leads to the bachelor of science degree, is a joint effort of the University's Department of Geological Sciences, and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Sciences.

According to Alfred Clark, chairman of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Sciences, ‘The course will emphasize a quantitative approach to the natural sciences.’ Clark believes the course will prove especially valuable for students who want training that will enable them to attack environmental problems.
