Program Description

The Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Units (CESU) Network is a national consortium of federal agencies, academic institutions, tribal, state, and local governments, nongovernmental conservation organizations (300 partners). The Desert Southwest Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (DSCESU) is a cooperative network, transcending political and institutional boundaries, which creates innovative opportunities for research, education, and technical assistance in support of the management and stewardship by partner agencies of the Desert Southwest natural, cultural, and social resources. The DSCESU has a unique collaborative relationship with research scientists, end users of research products, the public, and educators who are trained to bridge the gap between researchers, science users and educators. The purpose of this project is to have Bureau of Land Management (BLM) engineers and scientists to work side by side with students and faculty from a Civil Engineering and/or Environmental Engineering program on engineering, abandoned mine, and hazmat issues impacting public lands. The project is intended to expose students and faculty to the issues that impact Federal land management agencies in Arizona and allows them the opportunity to work side by side with BLM on the development of solutions to many complex real world problems. This project will allow the university engineering programs to obtain hands on training for their students while working directly with BLM engineering and scientific staff. The project will allow for students and faculty to work one-on-one or as a member of a project team with the BLM staff. The projects will very in complexity and may include field work to gather and analyze data from project sites throughout Arizona. The project will allow the student to work in teams developing solution to real world problems that are encountered in the daily management of public lands. The projects will require the students to utilize their engineering classroom training on a BLM projects. The BLM staff will work with the students and faculty members to identify projects that will enable both the students and BLM to gain valuable information and experience from the projects.
