Profile of the Programme
The Master’s studies in Mining course is undertaken on completion of the Bachelor’s studies. It enriches the knowledge gained in the specialized field and that increases the possibilities of advancement in the profession, especially to manage grades. The Alumni satisfies the conditions required by the government for all official positions in mines and quarries in the Czech Republic. The course educates experts to work in the sphere of mining and in the processing of raw materials, including fossil fuels and metallic and nonmetallic minerals. The Alumni will be well-qualified to work in establishments engaged in civil engineering or to be employed as research workers working as state administration clerks in municipal offices and in regional authorities and ministries. After a successful graduation of the Master’s course, it is possible to continue in a doctorate [Ph.D.] in postgraduate studies in the field of Mining or Mining Geomechanics.
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 clean up the mining activities, as deep, and superficial way, then find application in energy, engineering companies and handlers of valuable minerals and companies that deal with landscaping work. Professional graduate theoretical knowledge is used in all levels of management functions, the mining and mineral processing, the disposal and reclamation následků mining, energy sector, state mining authorities, research institutes, specialized firms for the mining and quarrying (geomechanics, geophysics).'s Graduate able to develop projects that address the design, development and strategy firm.Je able to design mineral exploration, mining engineering, mining their own bearings and rehabilitation after mining bearings.The graduate can to understand and engage in the practice and safety and legal problems of mining.
Graduate Mgr.studia Mining sector can provide engineering, design and manage the exploratory phase of the preparation of deposits, mining engineering works, traffic management, rehabilitation and liquidation activity in higher levels of management bussines.Can to understand the technical, mapping, documentation of administrative and legal-security matters bearing mined raw materials.Is to expertise in labor law issues mining issues in the design and deployment of mining, transport and other technology to solve equipment.Can to mining and project design, preparation, mining, developing technology and techniques, and the traffic safety issues to ensure and apply directly to the operation sites bussines.Is able to hold technical and other specialized functions, geomechanics, ventilation, air conditioning, degassing, safety.
General competencies:
Master's degree in Mining course is conceived so that future graduates going to have the widest application. Graduates Master degree in mining meet the criteria for qualification performance managerial positions mining and quarrying, as in deep mines, and quarries, including in treatment, transport, rehabilitation and ensuring the security issues of mining and quarrying, energy, mineral processing raw materials.Their professional qualification is ideal for carrying out managerial functions of business-management and project execution, planning, production and control of the enterprise performance of the state mine inspector reports.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Mining engineering graduates meet all the conditions to enable them in the relevant regulations to hold all the control functions to "race down" eventually "race quarry and manage the technical side of the operation.Further of 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 work. Further of careers in energy and mineral processing.
