The University of Exeter has launched new Mining Engineering programmes

Two innovative new Mining Engineering programmes, delivered with experts from the Camborne School of Mines and designed to deliver key learning and professional development for those in the industry, have been launched.

The University of Exeter has launched both the Mine Management Degree Apprenticeship programme, and the BEng Mining Engineering programme, which will begin from September.

The programmes will provide current mining employees from diverse business specialisms, regulators and service providers with a wide-ranging, innovative, flexible and industry-relevant exposure to every aspect of the global mining value chain.

The programmes have been developed to help upskill those already holding roles within the mining industry, who want to develop their career. Participants will study a broad range of topics including the underlying maths, digital, geology and physics skills that inform engineering, mine design, operations, economics, environment and social governance.

The ground-breaking courses blend online learning with residential workshops to allow professionals to develop their careers by undertaking accredited advanced educational studies, while maintaining their industry roles.

Camborne School of Mines, part of the University of Exeter and based at the Penryn Campus, is one of the world’s most respected Mining Schools. Founded in 1888, it now has a unique combination of scientific and engineering expertise in geology, mining and minerals processing and applies this to world-leading research and teaching.

The Mining Management Degree Apprenticeship is a four year course beginning in September 2023.  For more information visit Mine Management | Degree Apprenticeships | University of Exeter
