UNSW's  School of Mining Engineering – ranked 5th in the world will be offering 15 new scholarships worth more than $700,000 for study in 2018.

The scholarships are a joint initiative of UNSW and the mining industry, seeking to counter the mistaken perception that the industry is in long-term decline and there will be few jobs in the sector.

In fact, with the turnaround in commodity prices during the past year, the industry is again seen as a major generator of economy activity and wealth for Australia.

To ensure the mining industry can continue to be highly productive and competitive, it needs high-quality mining engineering graduates who will develop the new technologies and systems that will keep it as the leading global supplier of minerals and energy products.
