Course content

Mining is an fascinating, global industry that is essential to societal progression. It provides the materials for production and is a leading industry in terms of technological innovation. This MSc is ideal for engineering and geologists already in employment that are looking for skills and knowledge enhancement. In addition, it is also suitable for geology and engineering graduates that wish to specialise in the following areas: mine, general management and excavation (geotechnics and tunnelling).

Students will learn specialist analytical, design and management skills that are relevant to industry. In addition, this programme also has excellent links with both the local and international minerals industry, which is reflected in its mix of UK and international students, and project-work is often centred around a company or business.
