Masters degrees in Mining Geology explore processes for exploiting geological products such as minerals sustainably. They include practical training in identifying and extracting ore deposits.
Related subjects include Geotechnology and Petroleum Geoscience. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geology or Geography.
Courses in this field equip you with mining engineering techniques such as geotechnical engineering and surveying to extract materials from the earth, for various industrial purposes. Materials include precious and base metals, non-metallic minerals, construction-grade stone, petroleum minerals, coal, and water.
Practical training may include surface and subsurface geology, through fieldwork such as geological mapping techniques, for example GIS (geographical information systems). Lab work is usually a key element, where you may undertake practices such as petrology and metallurgy to examine rocks and drill cores for ores and alloys.
Careers in this field are highly varied, and may include the direct extraction and manufacture of geological materials. They may also include roles in offshore engineering and renewable energy, such as the building of wind and wave turbines.
