Austmine STEM METS Career Pathway Program

Austmine's STEM METS Career Pathway Program offers students the opportunity to receive a paid internship at one of our world-leading member companies. This initiative is supported by METS Ignited. 

The program raises awareness of the METS sector within the next generation of employees and works to change the perception of a mining industry career from “old-world” to one filled with technology-driven, entrepreneurial opportunities. The program is designed to provide students on-the-job experience, mentoring and soft skills training for a successful STEM career in the METS sector, through a ten week paid internship at an Austmine member company. Participating students also receive online coaching, honorary Austmine membership and ongoing support through their internship.

  • Industry information sessions, where students will be able hear from host companies on the internships they are offering, and ask any questions they may have about the program and the sector. 
  •  A series of webinars featuring industry speakers to provide coaching for the successful students on starting a career in the METS sector.
