Georgia Clayfield and Benjamin Lee

Georgia Clayfield and Benjamin Lee have been rewarded for dedication to their studies at Monash University. Both Georgia and Benjamin are outstanding engineering students, and for their efforts they have received Awards for Academic Achievement from the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.

The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) awards are presented to undergraduate students with the highest results in courses relevant to the minerals industry.

Benjamin is studying a double degree, a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Chemical Engineering, with science majors in Mathematics and Chemistry. His diverse interests mean that there are many pathways open to him in his preferred field of engineering after graduation including biotechnology, and  process  and design engineering.

Georgia has the offer of a graduate position with mining company MMG Ltd waiting for her when she completes her Bachelor of Mining Engineering (Honours). She also worked with MMG at their polymetallic mine in Rosebery Tasmania over the summer as part of their Vacation Employment Program.

As winners of the AusIMM Academic Achievement awards, Georgia and Benjamin received student AusIMM memberships, giving them the opportunity to meet and network with other students and professionals in the minerals industry as well as access to research papers and other benefits.

Congratulations to Georgia and Benjamin, we wish them luck as they complete their studies.
