Process Tours

Regional industrial facility tours or process tours are organized for students throughout the academic year. These tours give students the opportunity to connect what is being taught in the classroom to real world facilities and processes. On these tours students interact with professionals in their field of study and learn first-hand about the environmental occupational health hazards that can accompany the different industrial processes.

See a list of past process tours here!
