About Mineral Engineering

Mineral Engineering is a non-traditional mining program that builds upon the more traditional degrees of geological engineering and mining engineering. The program is designed to meet the needs of the changing industries of mining and construction.

The department has modern, well-equipped labs for instruction and research in soil and rock mechanics, ventilation, blast vibrations, mineral evaluation, and computer applications.  The department also maintains its own experimental underground mine for instruction and research use by the students and faculty.  In addition, students often work with faculty members on research and consulting projects both in the labs at in the field at mine site. Such opportunities allow the student valuable hands-on experience in solving mining/mineral-related and geotechnical problems.
