When you study the Bachelor of Engineering Mining Transfer program you learn about the design, supervision and management of coal, mineral and metal mines. Students also study associated mining infrastructure and engineering practices.

A leading wealth producer for Australia and many parts of the world, mining refers to the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an ore body, vein or coal seam. Modern mining engineers minimise damage to environments while balancing the optimum production and processing of the mined matter, a balance students will learn to achieve.

You will gain a sound understanding of civil and mining engineering concepts in preparation for a career as a professional engineer. You will learn the skills needed to design, construct and manage mining projects by studying a tailored program of mining engineering courses. The last two years of the mining engineering degree are studied at either the University of New South Wales or the University of Wollongong.
