Q&A with Shawn vanDoorn, Future Mining Engineer
Shawn vanDoorn graduates in May 2020 with Michigan Tech’s renewed mining engineering degree. She talks about her Robo-One internship, career goals and favorite courses. Q: What made you want to get a mining engineering degree?
A: I grew up in a really small town in Wisconsin, so I looked into different engineering majors and I chose mining — it’s been really great. I was originally a bachelor’s of science in engineering with a mining eng minor but then the full degree went through so I will get the mining engineering degree.
