"The GW Geological Sciences Program not only taught me about geology but also other intangible skills that are useful for a professional geologist. The field experience, scientific inquiry skills and effective communication techniques that I gained during my days as a geology student opened up the opportunity for me to work at the prestigious PETRONAS company."
