¿Qué aprenderé?

Mineral Resource Engineering concentrates on the technical, environmental and economic aspects of the extraction and processing of the earth's mineral resources. It has a strong industrial and research interest in underground and surface mining for coal, oil shales, metals, gold and industrial minerals, and in mineral processing. Studies in reservoir engineering, offshore drilling and production of oil and gas complement the program. Mineral Resource Engineering prepares engineers for a career in advanced mine design and planning, rock mechanics, ground control, processing techniques and drilling engineering.

The Master of Applied Science (MASc) degree is generally more appropriate for students interested in pursuing a career in research and development. The program of study consists of four courses, a seminar, and a research thesis. The thesis results must be summarized and defended in an oral presentation. In most cases, full-time students complete all the requirements for a Master's degree in 16 to 24 months.

Research areas:
