Mining Engineering (MEng)

Course Description


Come join one of the world’s leading mining schools.

Receive a Master of Engineering Degree from one of the world’s strongest mining departments, at a top ranked university and in one of the most beautiful and liveable cities in the world.

The purpose of a M.Eng. degree is to increase student’s skills and knowledge in a particular aspect of mining or mineral processing.

- Mining geotechnics,
- Mineral processing,
- Mine economics, or
- Mining sustainability and the environment.

Gain practical experience with an 4-8 month paid work term.

Take advantage of our institute’s strong sense of community and close industrial support.

The Master of Engineering in Mining Engineering (M.Eng.) is an intensive study program designed for professionals and engineering graduates eager to upgrade their skills in order to build a solid base for a career in the global mining industry. It includes at least 30 credits of course work with the option to complete a coop work term. The program takes up to 2 years to complete.
