Department Overview

Are you interested in the Mining Industry and want to work around the world? Design, construct, and manage surface and underground mines around the world with a degree in Mining Engineering. Pursue a career in the field of Mining Engineering and be prepared to meet the vigorous demands of environmentally responsible natural resource development throughout the world. Receive a comprehensive engineering background with specialized training in the mechanics of geologic materials, blasting, materials handling, mine valuation, ventilation, environmental considerations, and the design and operation of surface and underground mines. Learn more about Mining Engineering.

Mining engineers design, construct, and manage surface and underground mines in an environmentally responsible manner. A mining engineer must be proficient in the permitting, planning, development, operation, reclamation and closure of mines and be able to apply, in the field, the technical skills required.

Master of Science candidates in Mining Engineering may choose to study in the areas of mechanics of geologic materials, blasting, materials handling, mine valuation, ventilation, geostatics, mine design, mine safety, and environmental management and design of mines.
