The EGS4038F Course Field Trip took place on the 6th to 8th May on two family farms located between Hermanus and Standford. The mountainous view was right outside our doorstep, and the melodious sound of the lagoon brought an ambience of serenity. It was a tranquil experience with Mother Nature
As part of the welcome activities, our MPhil and MSc Environment, Society and Sustainability class recently spent a night away together to know one another them better.
The EGS department welcomed over 50 new course work postgraduates during Orientation Week (8-12 February 2016). EGS hosts a number of postgraduate programmes, with students registered in the faculties of Science and Humanites.
Four academic staff of the EGS department were promoted during this year's ad hominem promotion exercise. Dr Gina Ziervogel was promoted to an Associate Professor, while Drs Kevin Winter, Pippin Anderson and Shari Daya were promoted to Senior Lecturers.
