Mining Engineering (PhD) - Doctor of Philosophy in Mining Engineering

   
Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Mining and Mineral Engineering
Description Backed by an unparalleled reputation for expertise and innovation in mineral extraction, mineral processing and environmental protection, the graduate program in Mining Engineering has two types of students in mind: - Those from industry who wish to improve their workplace skills; and - Those who wish to pursue research leading to advances in state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice mining and mineral process engineering. In order to best meet the needs of these two groups, the program encourages interaction between universities in North America and other countries. In many cases, this collaborative outlook leads to joint research projects and student exchanges. In keeping with the collaborative approach of the NBK Institute of Mining Engineering, one of the Department’s greatest strengths lies in its ties with Canada’s mining industry. Most of our students have opportunities for industry employment and participation in research activity at working mines. This hands-on approach helps our students develop practical skills and gain exposure to valuable case histories. Also, many of our faculty members are active within industry through consulting activities and involvement in professional societies relating to mining. The department provides opportunities for interdisciplinary work on social, economic as well as engineering research. Other advantages are international research and travel opportunities and connections to CIRDI. Vancouver is a centre for Mining Activity in Canada with its abundance of junior mining companies, finance for mining companies, and law for mining companies. The end result is an innovative, industry-responsive and internationally recognized graduate program of the highest caliber.
