On behalf of our staff and students I welcome you to the University. Western Australian School of Mines (WASM) is a world class place to learn mining. The WASM brand is one of the most recognised icons in the world of mining education. It has been locally and internationally acknowledged as a provider of excellence in minerals education, research and industry service since 1902. WASM is located on both the Kalgoorlie Campus in the heart of Australia's mining industry and the Bentley Campus of Curtin University.

We are all deeply proud of WASM's achievements now and over the past 100 plus years, which continue to place it amongst the world's truly great minerals education and research institutions. I hope that studying at WASM will give you the opportunity to advance your career in one of the most important sectors in national and global economies. What's more, a professional qualification from WASM can become the key to your future.

As a WASM graduate, I can honestly say that it is hard to beat WASM's mining culture, knowledge and opportunities for personal growth. I hope you will take time to look around and experience it for yourself.
Good luck with your studies!
