MACS students spend a week at sea monitoring the Queen Charlotte Fault

A crane on a ship begins to retrieve a yellow raft holding a seismometer from the sea

Communication is a two-way street; when one speaks, the other listens, and tries to interpret the sometimes subtle signals in the language.

But when you’re a geophysicist, and what you’re listening to are the not-so-subtle signals of one of the most active fault systems in the world – and then the fault starts speaking in a wholly different language than you expected it to – that’s when the conversation gets REALLY interesting.

This is the situation that Western Washington University Assistant Professor of Geology Emily Roland finds herself in; her erstwhile conversation partner, the Queen Charlotte Fault off the British Columbia and Southeast Alaska coasts, has begun a dialog with the world’s geologic community in a wholly new and unexpected way.

Read more about Roland's research cruise with her students here.

Tech & Engineering Fair set for Nov. 3 in the VU Multipurpose Room

Engineering and Tech Fair set for November 3

Are you a WWU student looking for job or internship opportunities? Meet with dozens of employers who want to connect with students of all majors and class levels at the Technology & Engineering Career & Internship Fair  on Thursday, Nov. 3 from  11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Viking Union Multipurpose Room.   

The entire WWU Community, including students, alumni, and campus visitors, are welcome to attend this free event to learn about employers and get hired or build their network! This is an in-person career fair, so meeting with employers is on a first-come first serve basis, unlike virtual career fairs held last academic year. 

Get details on the Engineering & Tech Fair here.
