The specialisation in Mine Planning and Operations will provide students, from other discipline areas, content knowledge in areas specific to Mining Science. This specialisation will help to work with mining engineers in developing and implementing mine plans, as well as conducting safe and efficient mine production operations. Students with sufficient background in mathematics and other sciences, along with strong communication skills pursue a successful career in mining industry.
What you'll learn
- have demonstrated narrower knowledge and understanding in a further field of study that is typically at a level that, whilst supported by advanced textbooks, includes some aspects that will be informed by knowledge of the forefront of mining activities, GC1
- can apply their narrower specific knowledge and understanding in a manner that indicates a professional approach to the field, and have competencies typically demonstrated through devising and sustaining arguments (to both specialist and non-specialist audiences) and solving problems within mining, including using digital technologies, GC2, GC3
- can gather and interpret relevant data within mining to inform judgements that include reflection on relevant social, scientific, or ethical issues, including being aware of the diversity of international perspectives associated with mining activities, and how these impact upon the practice of the field, GC4, GC5
- display a high standard of professional behaviour, including effective time management, both independently and as a team member, GC6
