WA School of Mines Alumni – Resource Connect
February 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
An exciting new transformation is occurring in the WA School of Mines and the WA School of Mines Alumni. From January 2018, the School will incorporate the powerful resources engineering disciplines of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, which had been located in a separate school, as well as Mineral and Energy Economics (currently located within Curtin’s Graduate School of Business). This is seen as a positive development for the WA School of Mines broadening its disciplinary base whilst concentrating disciplines associated with the resources sector within the one school. Exploration Geophysics will remain in the WA School of Mines, along with Mining and Metallurgical Engineering, while Applied Geology and Spatial Sciences will move into a new School of Earth and Planetary Sciences. Both Applied Geology and Spatial Sciences will continue their existing teaching into WA School of Mines programs. The changed composition and expanded reach of the School is now reflected in the list of disciplines appended to the title of the WA School of Mines: Minerals, Energy and Chemical Engineering. The reconfigured WA School of Mines will have a new Head, Professor Vishnu Pareek, while its operations on the University’s Kalgoorlie campus will continue to be led by Professor Sam Spearing – Director, WASM Kalgoorlie.
For the alumni, the new schools former graduates are very excited to belong to WASMA, as the alumni has a reputation for it’s hands on approach to running the organisation that keeps everyone connected, offers guidance, career assistance, mentoring, financial services and recruitment.
In terms of numbers the alumni will be expanding to nearly 10,000 graduates across the globe.
We look forward to welcoming our new members and all our members at our 2018 events.
