Mining Engineering

Our MEng Mining Engineering degree programme is truly multidisciplinary, including elements of civil and mechanical engineering, geology, metallurgy, economics, environmental management and health and safety. It is 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. 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 programme is taught by the University of Exeter’s Camborne School of Mines (CSM), which has been training mining engineers for more than a century and has an international reputation. Many extractive industry operations around the world will have a CSM mining engineer somewhere within their staff and there is an active network of more than 1,000 graduates. 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. The Mining Engineering degree programme provides the knowledge and understanding of geology, rock mechanics, engineering design, economics, surveying, management and associated practical skills that will enable you to make a valuable contribution as soon as you are employed. This degree has been accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. An accredited MEng degree fully satisfies the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng)
