Awards and prizes

It makes sense that the harder you work at university the better off you’ll be in the future. But all that hard work often goes unnoticed. At UNSW School of Mining Engineering we try to show our hard-working students that their effort hasn’t gone under the radar. We reward students in various ways – through things like prizes and the Dean's Awards, both which are also great ways to get a leg up in the future.
