Mining engineering involves the extraction and processing of ores from the earth. You will acquire skills, knowledge and experience in all aspects of exploring, planning, extracting and processing minerals, including environmental impact assessment and management; mine system design, management and economics; geology; and geomechanics.
This area of study entry applies to students commencing this course in 2018 and should be read in conjunction with the relevant course entry in the Handbook.
Any units listed for this area of study relate only to the 'Requirements' outlined in the component of any bachelors double degrees.
Unit codes that are not linked to their entry in the Handbook are not available for study in the current year.
