Our goal is to forge close relationships among the business community, higher education institutions, and government agencies,
in technology-based endeavors. The Center for Environmental, Geotechnical, and Applied Sciences (CEGAS) was
established in May 1993 through a cooperative effort between Marshall University the West Virginia Graduate
College, which have since merged. Since 2005 CEGAS has housed the
West Virginia Brownfields Assistance Center at Marshall University. CEGAS uses an approach that includes
providing educational offerings, research, services, and long-term planning for regional development.
A welcome from Dr. Tony B. Szwilski, Center Director
