The Future Mining Engineer – what will be the educational needs to supply the Mining 4.0 industry?back
Titled presentation by Professor Bruce Hebblewhite, Chair of Mining Engineering at the School of Minerals & Energy Resources Engineering, UNSW Sydney. Professor B. Hebblewhite is the Professor of Mining Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, Australia. He has over 40 years of international mining experience; having spent 17 years in a full-time consulting role in the Australian mining industry (at ACIRL Ltd), and over 23 years in academia at UNSW, including 12 years as Head of the School of Mining Engineering (2003 – 2014). Bruce retired from this role in 2014 but continues at UNSW in a part-time capacity.
From 2006 to 2009 Bruce was the inaugural Executive Director of the Australian collaborative educational joint venture, Mining Education Australia (MEA). Professor Hebblewhite was also a former President (2008-2009) and then the Secretary-General of the international Society of Mining Professors (SOMP), from 2012 to 2018.
Bruce has been the recipient of a number of international awards recognising his special interests and experience in mining geomechanics and ground control; and also in mining education and research. These have included the 2012 Syd S Peng Ground Control Award from SME in the USA; the 2017 SME Rock Mechanics Award; and the 2017 Ludwig Wilke Award for contribution to international mining research and education, from the Society of Mining Professors.
The presentation will explore some of the differences in the context of the industry needs for professional engineering graduates, and especially mining engineering graduates.
