BGC is supporting capstone engineering design projects at several universities across Canada. Engineering students, typically in their final year of undergraduate study, work collaboratively with BGC to solve an open-ended earth science problem. BGC contributes by providing a design project idea and regular mentorship throughout the year, and students benefit from the ability to participate in real-world engineering projects under the guidance of experienced mentors. Current projects involve optimizing an open pit mining sequence, designing a tailings facility, and analyzing risk associated with landslide geohazards.
