4th year, Mining Engineering 

“After attending the UNSW Open Day, I decided UNSW was where I wanted to study. I had the opportunity to go into the AVIE theatre (virtual reality simulator) which I loved and spoke to multiple students about their expectations. I loved the campus and after seeing what the School of Mining Engineering had to offer, there was no their option in my mind”

3rd year, Civil/Mining Engineering 

“I knew I wanted to study engineering. After attending information days and evaluating the different degrees in terms of interest, career prospects and nature of work, it became very difficult to decide between Civil and Mining. However, since UNSW offers a dual degree for both disciplines, I knew I had to enrol in that one. Being a smaller cohort compared to the other larger disciplines definitely has its advantages as all of us have bonded quickly and help each other out.”

Bethany Mckenzie
4th year, Mining Engineering 

"Growing up in the country, I was exposed to mining throughout my life and I found that I was quite interested in how it all worked. I was also drawn to the degree because of the broad range of work you undertake as a Mining Engineer. I thought it would definitely be a career that I would continue to be challenged in and UNSW was a great place to come and learn about the industry from industry experts."
