Postgraduate studies

The Department of Mining Engineering presents honours, master’s and doctoral degree programmes in mining engineering and applied science mining.

The Department’s postgraduate degree programmes offer a broad spectrum of subjects and accommodate various mining-related research projects for dissertations and theses. Students can also incorporate a number of modules from other engineering disciplines into their courses if specialist knowledge outside of the Department is required. The courses are presented through self-study modules that enable students to study either full time or part time at their own pace.
