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 someone actively pursuing their PhD who has a desire to utilize Itasca software in their research. The doctoral student must apply for the program and acceptance is limited.

This program provides those accepted a one-year loan of the requested software as well as mentorship and possible scholarship for introductory trainings offered by Itasca Consulting Group in Minneapolis.
