In celebration of our most recent cohort of graduates, the AusIMM Southern Queensland Student Chapter (SQSC) recently hosted our inaugural Graduation Dinner in Brisbane on November 19, 2017.
The event was held in conjunction with the AusIMM New Professionals Network (NPN) and the University of Queensland Mining and Metallurgy Association. It drew together 50 young professionals from mining, metallurgical and chemical engineering, geology and commerce/ finance disciplines – all with hopes of forging careers in the resources industry.
The event celebrated the achievements of the SQSC’s graduates and aimed to inspire future achievement, as well as promoting graduate involvement in the AusIMM. William Hartley of the NPN Committee delivered a presentation, sharing his own journey as a UQ graduate and new professional in the mining industry. Overall, the event was thoroughly successful; the Southern Queensland Student Chapter is looking forward to continuing it in the coming years, with potential to further engage our network of new professionals and alumni.
