You may work on surface mines or in underground mining. We'll teach you how to mine in a sustainable and safe way and teach you the social and political aspects that will impact your career. You'll also learn communication and problem-solving that are essential in the industry. Study areas include mineral deposit evaluation and processing, underground production systems, mine power and services, surface mining operations and mine environment and safety.
Perhaps you'll launch your career in design, planning or operations or you'd like to be manager.
