If I think back to my university days all the tuition was from textbooks and the internet. A lot of the stuff was quite difficult to comprehend, as I had very limited exposure to mines back then. That made me think: if I could relive those days, what would have helped me to better understand the material? The School of Rock is assisting the Mining Engineering Department of the University of Pretoria in designing and conducting tutorial exercises, where students apply the information from class in a fun and productive way. All the exercises are done using mine planning software from our software partners, exposing the students already at university level to industry requirements, thus preparing them a bit better for their responsibilities one day.
