The annual student-industry workshop is a centrepiece of the MRIWA Education Program, working to build bridges between mining innovators and decision makers in research and industry.

These events provide opportunities for applying high-level research and analysis skills to mining challenges, and encourage participants to explore systems-level thinking and problem solving in a mining environment.

Places are strictly limited.
