Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Mining) / Bachelor of Science

The University of Adelaide

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

This double degree program combines the disciplines of mining engineering and science allowing students to study towards two degrees simultaneously. Students study the concepts of mining engineering and choose a science specialisation. Mining engineers are concerned with the extraction and processing of ores from the earth that contain valuable minerals or metals. With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the degree, the program can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately. Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.

Structure

Students are required to complete 6 weeks of approved work experience as part of the engineering academic program.
