Students at Peru’s National University of San Marcos gained a familiarity with technologies used in the mining industry thanks to a partnership with Maptek

Senior-level students at the National University of San Marcos gain familiarity with technologies used in the mining industry thanks to a partnership with the digital mining technology specialist.

In September 2023, Maptek hosted a masterclass, sharing the latest tools for designing surface mines with 30 students in the final units of their mine engineering degree at the university in Lima.

David Melgar, Professor of Mining Engineering thanked Maptek for the opportunity to see innovative solutions in action.

"The students and I were very surprised by the agility of Vulcan to process information quickly and easily to generate multiple open pit designs.

The university looks forward to continuing the relationship with Maptek

"Importing a block model was really fast, with no need to make multiple configurations.

"The automatic open pit designer was really impressive, greatly shortening the time it takes to carry out this important operation during project development.

"The university looks forward to continuing the relationship with Maptek, which improves career prospects for mining engineers as they enter the industry," Melgar said.
