Hello and Welcome to the UNSW SPE Student Chapter page! I’m Alex, a third-year student of Petroleum and Mining Engineering and this year’s president.

I now strive to allow all new students to have as smooth an introduction to their course as I have. On behalf of our committee, we’re excited to be representing you all. So, stick around, we’ve got so much in store for you this year!
