What MSC professor has influenced you and why?

“The professor that influenced me the most would have to be Professor Snyder. After taking a course with him, I knew his knowledge and charisma would impact my college career. I have worked closely with Professor Snyder throughout the four years I attended MSC. The wisdom and advice that I have received from Professor Snyder have helped me accelerate in my career and personal life. He has been a true inspiration and I will use knowledge he has taught me the rest of my life.”

Renewable Resources Technology B.Tech.


The Bachelor of Technology degree in Renewable Resources is designed to prepare students for entry into public and industrial jobs at field, supervisory,and management levels in natural resources conservation, environmental science, environmental technology, and aquaculture and aquatic science.

A full-semester, 600-hour internship (15 credits) is a unique course requirement that enables students to get a foot in the door, providing them with opportunities to gain valuable experience, make professional contacts, and build their resumes in preparation for future employment and career decisions. Most internships are paid and opportunities do exist nationwide in both the public and private sectors. Many placement sites are available in New York state, but students who wish to travel can find opportunities in other parts of the country. Some successful internships have included environmental education with the New York state Department of Environmental Conservation, landscape design and development with Hamilton College, GIS (geographic information system) mapping with the Onondaga County Parks Department, and wildlife management studies for the Great Swamp Conservancy.
