MEng/BEng Mining Engineering
J113 4 years (MEng)
J110 3 years (BEng)
The Mining Engineering degree is taught by the University’s Camborne School of Mines (CSM), which has more than 120 years’ experience in training mining engineers and an excellent international reputation. Many extractive industry operations around the world will have a CSM mining engineer somewhere within their staff.
CSM is one of the best equipped departments of its kind in Europe. Our staff are actively involved in research and you will benefit from their cutting-edge knowledge and our research facilities. We are also the only university in the UK to have its own test mine for teaching and research.
Our degree programme is truly multidisciplinary, including elements of civil and mechanical engineering, geology, metallurgy, economics, environmental management and health and safety. It’s also highly vocational, so in addition to lecture-based study, the programme includes field trips, tours, a summer industrial placement and practical classes in surveying and in our test mine. You will generally spend your second year summer vacation gaining work experience anywhere from Australia to the UK and will often be paid for doing so.
The Mining Engineering degree programme is professionally accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), providing the opportunity for you to work towards Chartered Engineer status after you graduate.
