Profile: «Mining»

Training term: 5,5 years

Qualification of the graduate: Mining engineer (Specialist)

Today the profession of a mining engineer is one of the most highly paid. Any gold and diamond-mining, or oil and gas company can’t manage without surveying services. The surveyor works at: exploration of natural resources; mountain enterprises being both under construction and operation; construction of underground constructions. In the course of construction, the surveyor controls the implementation of underground works, carries out measurements and corrects project deviations.

The area of specialist’s professional activities includes:
- engineering support of human activities in Earth subsoil when carrying out operational exploration, extraction and processing of firm minerals, construction and operation of underground objects of different function.

Subjects of specialist’s professional activities are:
- Earth subsoil, including industrial objects, equipment and technical systems of their development,
- technologies of safe and efficient ensuring of production, firm minerals processing, and rational use of underground space.

Specialist in Mining is trained for the following types of professional activities:
- production and technology,
- organization and administration,
