Mining Engineering



This course is designed for graduates from a four-year Engineering undergraduate degree not accredited by Engineers Australia in a related discipline.

The course is not suitable for graduates of a four-year undergraduate degree, with Engineers Australia accreditation in the same discipline. Those holding an EA accredited qualification and seeking a masters level qualification in the same discipline are encouraged to consider applying for entry to the Master of Philosophy or Master of Engineering Management.

Applicants seeking entry who do not hold a four year Engineering degree are required to first complete the one-year Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering.

This major provides comprehensive knowledge in mining engineering including mineral exploration, mine planning, development and management. You will learn about both theoretical and practical principles of mining engineering including the concept of smart mining using advanced data analytics and robotics applications in the mining industry.

During the course, you will learn various aspects of mining engineering with the sophisticated curriculum including, but not limited to, mining methods, resources estimation, geomechanics, mine planning and feasibility study, ventilation, rock excavation, mine management, digital applications, future mining and sustainability.

Our course provides extensive opportunities for integration with the mining industry through Work Integrated Learning (WIL) embedded in each unit.

In the final year, you will undertake a research project over two-semesters. This project unit is designed with the aim to encapsulate all course learning outcomes and expose students to solve challenging mining engineering problems.

This major sits within the Master of Professional Engineering degree. To apply for this major, you will apply for the Master of Professional Engineering.
