MICROMINE’s Academic Licence Scheme (ALS) works with more than 115 college and university partners around the world to help attract and develop talented students and teachers who can help achieve a more technically proficient global mining workforce. MICROMINE’s ALS partnership continues to grow with a new agreement being signed with the University of Nevada Reno (UNR), the Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering.
“The Mackay School of Mines under the Mining and Engineering Department of UNR will now have full access to the mining industry’s leading exploration and mine design software solutions for undergraduate course work, graduate studies and leading university research” said MICROMINE’s North American Regional Manager, Dallas Araneda.
The University of Nevada Reno, a division of the College of Science, the Mackay School of Earth Sciences enjoys a long and proud history at the UNR. While offering programs in geology, geography, geophysics, geological engineering, hydrogeology and mining engineering. UNR’s Mackay School of Mines has expanded its scope to include research and degree programs in other critical earth science disciplines including seismology, environmental engineering and hydrology.
“We are very pleased at the Mackay School of Mines to have partnered with Micromine and to use the Micromine software solutions in our course work. Micromine will be a valuable addition to our strong curriculum preparing students for the academic and professional work” commented Javad Sattarvand, Assistant Professor, UNR on the recent agreement.
“It is great to partner with another leading mining school in the North America and offer tools that will help develop the skills of tomorrow’s workers. It is such a great opportunity for the students these days to have access to industry leading mining software solutions that will help them prepare for the jobs of today and the problems of tomorrow. Having experience with technical tools like Micromine in a classroom setting will not only better expose them to life in the industry, but will also give them a step ahead of their competition post school.’ Aaron Amoroso, Senior Geologist from MICROMINE North America.
Internationally renowned for its academic programs in the earth, mineral and engineering sciences, and its diverse research activities, Mackay has earned its reputation for excellence by providing the mining, engineering and minerals industries with highly-trained graduates, by conducting cutting-edge research in its state-of-the art facilities and by its continuous offering of public service to Nevada and the nation.
“Under the leadership and guidance of Javad Sattarvand and Eniko ‘Annie’ Kocsis, both professors at UNR, they will implement Micromine as one of the tools used in mineral reserve estimation and surface design mine courses.” Mr Amoroso went on to say.
