Mining engineers are responsible for the planning, design, and operation of a mine to extract natural resources. They are involved in every stage of the mining cycle including exploring new deposits and deciding if they are economically viable, designing and constructing mines, managing the extraction of the mineral resources, ensuring the safety and environmental security of the operations.

Program curriculum
The program consists of basic courses such as mathematics, engineering foundations, and introduction to mining, geology which will be delivered within the first two years. The final two years cover the primarily mining courses which will be supported by practical lab components, field trips as well as computer aided software design packages to equip the students for the industry needs.
