“My experience in UNSW helped me secure a job as a graduate geotechnical engineer in the largest gold mine in Australia and one of the largest in the world.”
It has been a whooping 6 years for Mingyan at UNSW having completed both a master’s and a PhD in petroleum engineering. Mingyan currently works as a Geotechnical Engineer and attributes her curiosity towards learning how the world works and how things are built, as the drive towards pursuing engineering.
Mingyan completed her bachelor’s degree in engineering in China and after working for a few years in the energy sector, decided to pursue postgraduate study at UNSW to brush up on professional skills due to the location and research programs offered. Mingyan moved from China to Australia in 2016 and started her Masters in UNSW and found it to be a wonderful experience. Afterwards, she decided to further her study into a PhD to focus on geomechanics.
