Simon Breslin, Master of Engineering Science

Get your qualifications and, when you get a job, work hard. There are a lot of opportunities out there if you remain positive, proactive and connect with people in your chosen industry.

Simon Breslin

The best way to advance in the mining industry is to be armed with the latest skills and knowledge. Postgraduate coursework programs can make a significant difference for those already working in the industry or for those planning a career change.

 

The Master of Mining Engineering provides advanced study in mining engineering, with various entry points and pathways of study depending on the student’s background. Designed to cater for people with an engineering or technical background, the program can be undertaken on either a part-time or full-time basis. The program provides an opportunity for mining engineering graduates and minerals industry professionals to continue their professional development in specialised areas.

 

Students have a choice of doing a Master of Mining Engineering with a component of Mine Geomechanics, or a Mine Management plan.

 

Students can choose the Masters program or enter via the Graduate Diploma and step up to the Masters at a later time.

 

There will be no enrolments for this program for Semester 2, 2017. Students can enrol for Semester 1, 2018.
