The strength of EDCE is that it spans a remarkably broad research spectrum: from rock mechanics to microbiology, from rivers to roads and from the dams to glaciers. Because of this breadth, researchers are able to combine disciplines in creative and original ways. EDCE offers the educational model necessary to become a leader in fast-paced, high-tech industries and academia.
