Profile of the Programme
The Bachelor’s studies in Mining course is conceived so that the alumni will be qualified to work in companies dealing with the mining industry or activities connected to this industry. The course educates students to be experts who are able to work in spheres of mining and in the processing of raw materials, including fossil fuels and metallic and non-metallic minerals. The Alumni will satisfy the conditions to enable them to fill most of the official positions in mines and quarries. Students can influence their specialization by a suitable selection of most of the elective subjects. After successfully graduating in the Bachelor’s course, it is possible to continue with studies of mining engineering in the Master‘s course, which enhances the knowledge gained in specialized areas and that increases the possibilities of advancement in the profession, especially to manage grades.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
On the basis of theoretical and practical experience, the graduate can apply their knowledge and expertise in mining, processing, and cleaning up mining as deep, and superficial way, then find application in energy, engineering companies and handlers of valuable minerals and companies that deal with rehabilitation work. Professional theoretical knowledge of the graduates found employment in middle management positions in mining and mineral processing, the liquidation of consequences of mining and reclamation of business. Absolvent can solve design, geological survey, mining engineering, mining their own bearings and rehabilitation after mining bearing minerals.The graduate can navigate and even in the practice of security and legal issues of Mines (mining law, safety regulations).
Graduates can solve the basic problems of research bearings, mining engineering works, traffic management at the central controller worker.University student can understand the technical documentation and mapping, has expertise in the issue of deploying mining machinery and transport equipment, able to address issues of technological development and security procedures and this operation to ensure the security problems and apply directly to the operation sites firm. The graduate can to lead and manage the work team.
General competencies:
Bachelor's degree in Mining Engineering is designed so that future graduates have the widest application in practice. Graduates bachelor degree in mining meet the qualification criteria for high-performance senior management mining and quarrying, as in deep mines, and quarries including the treatment, transport, rehabilitation and ensuring the security issues of mineral extraction mineral resources. Qualification is ideal for carrying mid-management positions designing, planning, production and control of the enterprise.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Mining engineering graduates meet all the conditions to enable them in the relevant regulations to hold middle management positions to "race down" eventually "race quarry and manage the technical side of the operation.Next find jobs in other economic features of coal, ore and non-ore businesses in the areas of application of geomechanical service professionals ventilation, air conditioning, transportation, quality control, safety.
