We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Mining & Quarrying help postgraduates gain skills to extract and process minerals, metals and stone.
Related subjects include Mining Engineering and Sustainable Geoscience. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Civil Engineering, Geology or Earth Sciences.
Mining & Quarrying is not simply a case of digging for resources: it’s also a process of logistics, involving geological understanding and technical accuracy. As a result, you will learn about a broad range of topics, from excavating materials to processing and distributing them for relevant industrial purposes.
Depending on your interests, you may want to study Mining and Quarrying as distinct subjects. Or, you might choose to analyse a particular industry – such as the energy sector or urban planning – and explore the methods and techniques which are needed for them to operate.
Practical training may include fieldwork and workshops to extend your practical skills, alongside lab research and projects to deepen your technical understanding of different resources.
Careers may include project management of mining and quarrying sites, roles in resource distribution and logistics, or policy-making within regulatory authorities.
