About this course
Mining engineering involves applying skills and knowledge in science and technology to safely and efficiently extract minerals from the earth.
What you will learn
apply scientific, engineering ,technological and management principles to mine development, plan and manage mining projects or mine geotechnical engineering projects extending the knowledge base through research
think critically and creatively to generate innovative solutions and apply logical and rational processes to analyse mine design, operational planning and management systems and processes or mine geotechnical design and develop suitable engineering processes and solutions
access, evaluate and synthesise mine planning and design or geotechnical engineering information from multiple sources
communicate in ways appropriate to the discipline of mining engineering, using the written word and oral presentations
apply information technologies and mining software tools to generate engineered solutions to mining and design problems and continuum and discontinuum modelling/software tools to generate engineered solutions to geotechnical design problems
demonstrate responsibility and self-learning and team-skills by applying critical reflection, evaluation and proactive managing and working in teams
identify the constraints and impacts of mine design and management decisions and geotechnical systems in the global environment and identify and apply local and best practice ethical and regulatory standards to design and management processes
demonstrate respect for cultural diversity in professional life and in the implementation of projects in a culturally diverse environment
work in accordance with professional standards and demonstrate responsibility towards the broader community.
