What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I thoroughly enjoyed returning to Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter here in Penryn, Cornwall. Having recently working in Western Australia in the mining industry as an Engineering Geologist, studying the mining engineering masters really helped link together the full mining life cycle, from production and cost estimation to drill & blast and quarrying.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 Living and studying in Cornwall, Falmouth is very unique and a fantastic place to live.

What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss the access to industry leading up to date academic content.

What advice would you give to current and future students? (If you are an international student what would you like to tell future students from back home who might be thinking about applying to study in Exeter?)

 If you have any interest in geology, mining, sustainability, and are very practical or academic, mining engineering covers it all.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I plan to return to Western Australia and work in the mining industry, working for a company that upholds the highest standards in sustainability and environmental protection.
