Course content

The demand for minerals process engineering is continuously growing. In order for us to obtain minerals that are pivotal to society’s progression, without causing damage to our environment, we must manage mineral development and production in a responsible manner. These valuable minerals are used to feed innovation and create products ranging from roads to mobile phones – and as the ‘provider’ of materials for production, mineral process engineers play a vital role in societal progression.

This programme is taught by the internationally established and world-class Camborne School of Mines (CSM), a combined mining school and geoscience department. Drawing on our research strengths in Mining and Minerals Engineering, this programme prepares you for a career in a variety of multi-disciplinary roles across the sector.

Students learn using industry standard facilities and develop specialist analytical, design and management skills that are relevant to mineral process engineering, while being able to utilise the university’s excellent links both nationally and internationally within the minerals industry.
