Mining Engineering

Senior Mining Engineer, AMC Consultants

I choose UWA because of the reputation it had for Mining Engineering.  

The proximity to all the Iron Ore in WA also helped with getting a job after graduating. I wanted to be a Mining Engineer because I wanted to work outdoors and see the world. I’ve had the opportunity to work on mine sites all over the world including Australia, Africa, South America, Papua New Guinea, America and now Canada.  

After graduating I worked for Rio Tinto on projects in WA’s Pilbara region. Now I’m in Vancouver doing consultancy work for AMC – great for a different type of lifestyle and snow sports! My role mainly involves technical-based work such as Pit design and cost and financial modelling.  

At UWA, my class was small and really focused which was good because the lectures were more personal and we got a lot of time and attention. I still keep in contact with the Head of the Mining Engineering.
