IEP Research Program

As a company, Itasca is committed to furthering the disciplines of geomechanics, hydrology, geochemistry and geophysics, both in research and in practice. We consider it a natural part of that commitment to identify individuals who share this commitment at early career stages; many of whom become future partners, collaborators, clients or Itasca employees.

The IEP Research Program is intended for graduate students with a desire to utilize Itasca software in their research. The student must apply for the program and acceptance is limited. This program provides the student with a one-year loan of the requested software as well as mentorship and possible scholarship for introductory trainings held in Minneapolis. To participate in the program the student agrees to use the software for research purposes only and to recognize Itasca in any publications created using the software. Renewal of the loan is dependent upon review of an annual report to be provided prior to expiration.
