The Graduate Diploma in Mining was created with the working engineer in mind. Intended as continuing education for scientists and engineers already involved with the mining industry, it is expected to appeal particularly to civil, mechanical, electrical, chemical and construction engineers, geologists, metallurgists, surveyors and other professionals with an interest in mining practice. This program will build upon the knowledge already gained from invaluable industry experience.
With a range of study modes available, from part time online learning to full time on campus study, this program can be tailored to suit your needs.
