Elisa Morgillo, a mechanical engineering student at Curtin University in Western Australia, has just completed her 11-week internship with SNC-Lavalin’s Mining & Metallurgy team in Perth, Australia, as a part of the Austmine Women in STEM: METS Career Pathway Program supported by funding from METS Ignited*. Member of Austmine for over four years, SNC-Lavalin was honoured to support this program providing undergraduates the opportunity to gain experience within the industry. On completion of her internship, Elisa presented an overview of her time with SNC-Lavalin to management, capturing her initial thoughts on how she views engineering, to the eye-opening experience she had on a site visit to Roy Hill.
Andrew Curtis, General Manager, Mining & Metallurgy, Australia, SNC-Lavalin commented: “We thank Elisa for her wonderful contribution to the team during her time with us and look forward to welcoming her back in the near future. This is a worthwhile initiative sponsored by Austmine and we look forward to being a part of the program again this year.”
* METS Ignited is an industry-led, government-funded, growth centre for the mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sector.
