Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Mining engineers work with all aspects of ore extraction and processing. They gather valuable minerals or metals and provide a backbone industry for our society. This intensive degree is suited to high-achieving engineering graduates, as well as engineers with relevant work experience. It is fully accredited by Engineers Australia. What will you do? Our Master of Engineering (Mining) comprises a foundation year and an advanced studies year. You will: study geomechanics, geotechnical engineering and geostatistics build skills in mine design, modelling and simulation conduct risk and uncertainty analyses explore mine management, planning and sustainable practices pursue specialist topics according to your interests and career goals undertake a significant research project. To stay in the program, you'll need to maintain a high grade point average. An exit path will be available if you're only completing the foundation year. In this case you'll receive a graduate diploma.
