Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the practice, theory, science, technology and application of extracting minerals from nature. Mining engineering also includes mineral processing for added value.
Mineral extraction is very important for modern society. Mining activities by their nature cause environmental disturbances in and around the area where the mineral is located. Therefore, mining engineers must be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with mitigating environmental damage.
Mining engineering is a complex and interdisciplinary field that includes geological, civil, mechanical, and material elements. Mining techniques ensure that mining is carried out efficiently and safely while maintaining sustainability and minimal environmental impact.
The program offers electives/concentrations as follows: exploration, hydrology, geomechanics, mining technology, mineral economics, management of earth resources, mineral extraction, coal technology, and corrosion.
In keeping with our collaborative outlook, one of our strengths lies in our relationship with the mining industry. Most of the graduates of this study program have job opportunities in major industries and participate in research activities working in mining areas. This hands-on approach helps students to develop the practical skills they have acquired during their studies. In addition, graduates of this study program are actively working in the consulting field. The aim of this study program is to create graduates who are innovative, industry responsive, and internationally recognized.
