Course Description
Mineral development and production must be managed in a responsible manner if we are to obtain these minerals without great damage to the environment. Highly trained engineers and scientists are needed by the minerals industry now and in the future. Mining applies many different branches of science and engineering to understand how minerals can be extracted from the earth. Mineral Resources engineers are primarily responsible for the safe and economic production of the Earth’s minerals. They work with metal ores, coal, oil and industrial minerals such as clays, granites and limestone. Many mines involve surface working in quarries, open pits, underground and strip mines. Mining engineers often manage teams of engineers and others from many different disciplines. Because of this, mineral resources engineering degree are very wide ranging and ideal for careers in engineering management. 

Mineral Resources Engineering programme is unique and target specific markets and groups. The demand for the students has increased from 10 in the early years to 35-40 students a year, currently.

 
Curriculum

•Years 1-2: Basic mathematics, science, mechanics, and computing tools, including introductions to engineering and engineering drawing, basic mathematics/statistics, basic science, and fundamentalcourses in engineering science.

•Year 3: In-depth coverage of engineering science and mineral resources engineering fundamentals in the current focus areas (mineral processing engineering, mining engineering, geology and environmental engineering), and key supporting courses (laboratory and site visits). Students introduced with technical electives for in-depth knowledge in some focus area subjects.

•Year 4: More technical electives that provide depth in the disciplines (include at least one major design project i.e., capstone project), a required course in professional practice.
