|Faculty:||Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science|
|Field of Study:||Mining and Mineral Engineering
|Description:||As technology evolves and the global economy changes, our students and researchers play a key role in defining the state of the art in mining. In close collaboration with industry partners, our faculty and students work to make mining operations safer, more efficient, more productive, less impactful on the natural environment, and more cost effective. Mining engineers need to know about all the engineering work associated with mining operations from initial discovery of ore deposits to marketing of the final manufactured products. Mining engineering is a discipline that requires a broad spectrum of knowledge. Queen’s students who choose mining engineering after the common first year receive basic preparation in electrical, civil, industrial, mechanical, metallurgical, and chemical engineering concepts. They then choose from among three major specialty options that are available in the mining engineering curriculum: mining, mineral processing, and mine environment and mine mechanical.
Students may achieve mastery to a contemporary professional standard in computer applications, automation and robotics, mine evaluation, equipment selection, industrial equipment design, heavy equipment maintenance, transportation systems, mine design and planning, rock mechanics, explosives technology, drilling and blasting, mineral processing, plant and process design, management and labour relations, environmental control, and energy efficiency and management.
