Media Release - COEMinerals' contribution to Engineering & Minerals research and education acknowledged (QS University Rankings 2024)

Seven of the Centre’s Australian university nodes have ranked within the global Top 30’ for the Mineral & Mining Engineering’ subject,
according to the 2024 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

A Media release by the University of Newcastle, 10 Apr 24 featured COEMinerals as contributing to this outcome, with quotes as below:

Professor Jennifer Milam said…

For example, as our region transforms its economy, we are seeing strength in our engineering programs, exemplified through the work led by Laureate Professor Kevin Galvin and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Enabling Eco-Efficient Beneficiation of Minerals (COEMinerals), which is based at the University of Newcastle.

We know that minerals are critical for Australia’s future, and that the transition to clean energy will be minerals intensive. Professor Galvin and his team are addressing the challenge of developing new, more efficient, less wasteful ways to recover minerals, and this work is recognised globally.”
