Have you ever stopped to think about how minerals are extracted from the earth, or what happens afterwards? Did you know that there are more minerals than those in the periodic table of basic elements impacting our everyday life? Mining is not just about coal, petroleum or gas. While mining encompasses all engineering disciplines, a degree in mining engineering will give you the skills to be part of Australia's largest industries. Study planning, design, testing, and the operation of open-cut and underground mines and get the opportunity to put your knowledge and skills into practice in class and at mining sites, where high-tech automation systems and smart mining engineering have already taken over.
In the competitive and ever-growing mining industry, you need a mining engineering degree that gives you effective training, problem-solving skills, and encouragement to innovate so you can stand out from the crowd.
