|Testimonial “As a student volunteer, you are immediately immersed into a community of esteemed minds who are working to innovatively tackle the biggest challenges in the metallurgical industry. Whilst assisting the fantastic team at ALTA, you get the opportunity to sit in on some of these exciting conferences whilst networking with academics and industry leaders from all around the world! One of my most notable experiences was discussing the future of nuclear power and the energy transition with leaders from several countries. Alan Taylor, his family and the ALTA team guide you every step of the way, they truly are passionate about facilitating the sharing of knowledge across global, industrial and academic borders.”

As part of our Student Program, we offer a number of volunteer places at the annual ALTA conference. Although we work with Australian universities, applications direct from students are accepted and encouraged. There are 13 volunteer positions available and only one is allocated to each student (one volunteer per day).
Conference volunteers attend the technical sessions with full delegate benefits, including networking events and receive the technical proceedings. Students also attend the presenter briefings which provides a rare opportunity for one-on-one discussion with keynote speakers, session chairs and presenters.
Short course volunteers attend the full-day short course, receive course materials and engage with a technically-focused group of professionals.
Due to the high response received, applications are now closed.
If you would like to add your name to the waitlist, please contact Rebecca Taylor.
