|Description:||Mining Engineering is concerned with the extraction and processing of ores containing valuable minerals or metals. To become a mining engineer, you need a thorough knowledge of general engineering principles, followed by the study of courses specific to mining and mineral processing. These courses are designed to cover a wide and diverse range of subjects in order to meet the challenges faced by the global mining industry. The program’s cross-disciplinary approach to mining is aimed at reducing the environmental impact of mining operations, improving the social impacts of mining, and increasing the efficiency of aspects of mineral extraction such as energy and water usage.|
