(Des Moines) A big job growth area right now, is in the energy sector. Technologies such as fracturing have ignited more interest in Geo-Science on college campuses. University of Iowa Assistant Professor Emily Finzel says students hoping for a job in the energy sector should get a solid, but broad, science education.
“We are looking for people that are scientific thinkers, they want problem solvers,” stated Finzel.
Finzel says those who get their Master’s Degree or PHD, could see “starting” salaries in the six-figure range.
