University of Adelaide students Jesse Jones and Will Thurlow have been awarded Maptek Mining Engineering scholarships for 2014.
The scholarships will allow them to travel to industry conferences, and buy textbooks and other resources to further develop the broad technical skills that will set them up for their mining careers.
Maptek founder Bob Johnson remembers well the impact of the financial support he received from the Joint Coal Board to undertake his geology studies.
‘That scholarship was critical for me and I was, and still am, greatly appreciative of the confidence people placed in me,’ said Bob. ‘I was able to concentrate on my studies and commit absolutely to the mining industry. By any measure the Board made a good investment.’
Maptek supports universities through scholarships, sponsorship and training to encourage young people into the mining world. Maptek maintains strong associations with mining and survey faculties globally, providing Vulcan licences and tuition, I-Site survey hardware and software, as well as masterclasses on specialised topics like geostatistics.
Jesse and Will were chosen from a group of high calibre final year students doing mining engineering in the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering.
Maptek also presents an annual prize to an outstanding student in the University of Adelaide School of Computer Science. Jacob Simionato received this award in May.
