Warren Centre and ICAA Support University of Sydney Advanced Engineering Students

In 2019 The Warren Centre with the support of the ICAA created a research project experience for a select team of exceptionally talented final year engineering students at the University of Sydney to stimulate and challenge them beyond the ordinary engineering coursework.

The final year ‘Jacaranda’ module engaged the group to act as ‘consultants’ for clients on projects. The ICAA challenged the students to find potential solutions for a zero-footprint copper mining site revolving around the construction and development of a mine, its processing methods and a novel underground surface transportation system. The module was supported by CMOC North Parkes and concluded with a visit to the North Parkes operation to discuss, test and review the student findings in a practical mine-site setting.
