This course is an extended, optional program for engineering students, in which you will learn an excellent blend of civil and construction engineering fundamentals and gain the practical skills required for professional practice.
In addition to developing civil and construction engineering skills, you'll gain detailed knowledge of mining engineering that will extend your expertise for careers in the mining industry.
Building on and complementing your studies in civil engineering, you'll learn aspects of surface and underground mining, materials handling and mining methods.
You'll also complete at least 12 weeks (or equivalent) of exposure to professional engineering practice, to satisfy professional requirements. This requirement can be met through appropriate work experience or a combination of technical and non-technical activities.
See our handbook for more course information.
