Why study this course

Mining engineering is the design, supervision and management of coal, mineral and metal mines and their associated infrastructure. Modern mining engineers minimise damage to environments while balancing the optimum production and processing of the mined matter. A leading wealth producer for Australia and many parts of the world, mining refers to the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an ore body, vein or coal seam. Students will gain a sound understanding of civil and mining engineering concepts in preparation for a career as a professional engineer. They will be equipped with the skills needed to design, construct and manage mining projects. The mining engineering degree is comprised of two years' study at UON. The remaining two years are undertaken at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) or the University of Wollongong (UOW)
