The scholarship recipient will visit Epiroc in Australia to experience first-hand Epiroc’s alliances with the Australian mining industry and then visit Sweden to visit the production facilities in Orebro, meet with Epiroc’s R&D marketing teams and then tour a number of the Swedish mine sites.
The scholarship is open to AusIMM Student members studying at Australian, New Zealand and Papua New Guinean universities in the final two years of their Bachelor’s Degree in technical courses of relevance to the minerals industry.
Emma is a final-year mining engineering and geology student at the University of Western Australia (UWA). She is an active committee member of the AusIMM Student Chapter at UWA and hopes to continue her involvement with the AusIMM as a mentor to younger students.
Emma has an enthusiasm for working in the minerals industry which has grown out of her love of travel, new challenges and a fascination for rocks. Having recently completed her third round of vacation work, Emma has developed a keen interest in the future of mining and is looking forward to gaining further insight into Epiroc’s innovative technology through the scholarship.
