Get the Curtin edge

Access to leadership programs, specialist facilities and industry placements give you a competitive edge in the job market.

Global education

You’ll have access to a range of international study opportunities.

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.

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
