The mining industry spans the globe, as do alumni of the University of Arizona mining and geological engineering program. Many got their feet wet working as interns for Arizona-based mining companies like Freeport-McMoRan.  

Andrew DeSantola and Brian Njenga, friends from the Class of 2014, are two who transformed their internships into full-time jobs as mine engineers working on international projects.
