Mining Engineering Certificate


The Minerals Industry is a vital and growing part of the US economy and the demand for professionals with knowledge and skills in the field of mining engineering is high. To help address this demand the Swanson School of Engineering offers three Mining Engineering Certificates. One certificate is for undergraduate engineers and geologists and requires three mining courses and two department specific courses. A second is for graduate engineering students and a third is for Post-Baccalaureate students with a BS degree. Both of these certificates require five mining engineering courses. Many of the mining engineering courses are offered via the distance learning format so professionals working in the minerals industry can participate from remote locations. Course work focuses on health and safety and environmental issues in the minerals industry and utilizes field trips to operating mines to demonstrate important principles.
