The School of Mining Engineering is a leading national authority in mining engineering education and research. As one of the four founding schools of UNSW in 1949, we welcome you to join one of the biggest engineering faculties in Australia offering a wide range of learning and research opportunities.
Our philosophy? Excellence in education and research. With Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Research programs, students will experience the expertise of our academics while engaging in practical and hands-on learning to establish a professional career in the industry. Our academics will not only transfer their knowledge and industry experience but will also be supportive throughout your studies.
We focus on four distinct research areas: Mining Geomechanics, Sustainable Mining Practices, Mining Systems and Processing as well as Innovative Learning and Teaching which are all critical to the future of the mining industry.
A major strength of our School is the Australian Centre for Sustainable Mining Practices (ACSMP) which is recognised by both government and industry in Australia and internationally as an authority on sustainable mining practices. With close ties to the mining industry, the school receives many forms of support including student scholarships, research and regular field trips to visit mines.
Most importantly, we invest in people who will shape tomorrow’s mining industry. Welcome on board.
