More detailed information
The Graduate Diploma is a one-year, course-based, 30-credit degree in Mining Engineering. It is open to professionals from industry, engineers and scientists, who wish to receive professional development education in mining engineering in a formal manner. The program includes a seminar course (6 credits), a minimum of six graduate level courses (18 credits), and a project (6 credits).
This program consists of 45 credits of coursework, seminars and projects to provide basic training in a particular field. The mixture of courses are selected in consultation with the student to provide the student with the desired background. A minimum of 12 course credits are required to be taken in graduate-level courses from the department. In addition 6-15 project credits from the department must also be taken. The balance of the credits may be taken from the department or other departments on campus.
In this program, a student will learn to carry out, organize and present research in a professional manner. This program consists of 45 credits. A preponderance of these credits, 27, are for thesis research. Four, graduate-level courses at 3 credits each are also required as well as a 6-credit seminar course.
The primary objective in this program is to train a student to become a leader in their field: to show familiarity with that field, to carry out, organize original research and to contribute to the knowledge base. With this in mind, a majority of the student’s time is spent in research though some classes are still required.
