The mineral industry deals with the excavation and processing of ore to obtain the mineral products required by contemporary society. To meet industrial requirements, the curriculum of Mining Engineering provides three closely associated options: Mining Engineering, Mineral Processing and Environmental Engineering and Mine-Mechanical Engineering. The Mining Engineering Option, in addition to the fundamentals of mining, includes elements of earthworks and excavation for both surface and underground. In the Mineral Processing and Environmental Engineering option, the subjects addressed include the design, operation and control of ore treatment plants and the environmental control systems required by government regulations. The Mine-Mechanical option produces mining engineers who understand the design, modification, automation, use and maintenance of heavy and specialized equipment in the mining industry.

Options available:

  • Mining Option
  • Mineral Processing Option
  • Mechanical Option
