It was back to school for Bara this week as Bara UK MD Dr. Andrew Bamber was at the Royal School of Mines in London to give a seminar on sensors and rocks to the 2nd year Earth Science class. Hosted by Dr. Pablo Brito Parada, Senior Lecturer in Earth Science and Engineering, the seminar course gives 2nd year students broad exposure to industry topics as well as occasional guest lectures by industry professionals. The November talk given by Bara covered an overview to the electromagnetic spectrum, interactions between electromagnetic energy and matter, basic sensor principles as well as case study examples of sensors in the field from exploration through mining operations to pyrometallurgy and lab applications.
It was a pleasure to see the seminar so well attended, and also to see the great diversity of students taking the course. Thanks to Pablo and his team for the invitation, we look forward to going back to school again in the near future!
