We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Minerals Technology develop the skills needed to excavate, process and extract minerals and metals from other compounds contained within mineral deposits.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Advanced Materials Engineering, Mining Geology, and Engineering Science. Entry requirements typically include a relevant undergraduate degree such as Geology, Civil Engineering or Earth Sciences.
Mineral Processing is essential for a huge variety of industries and products, from the food we consume to the materials that make up our vehicles. As such, studies in this field are suitably broad, offering a diverse selection of research opportunities for your final thesis.
Typically, training is provided in the techniques for extractive metallurgy and mineral processing through fieldwork and workshops. You will probably also conduct lab experiments to assess the chemical composition and crystal structure of various minerals.
Depending on your interests, you may wish to examine the processes for mineral excavation within select industries, such as the mining of precious stones for jewellery.
Other industries you could work in include medicine and pharmaceuticals, automotive and aerospace engineering, food processing, paper manufacture and ammunitions.
