Graduate Programs

Two Master’s degrees are available from the Department of Mining Engineering. The M.S. in Mining Engineering (M.S.Min.E.) degrees are most useful to students who plan a career in research, problem-solving or teaching. Both degrees are considered a prelude to the doctorate.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Mining Engineering consists of a period of residency, coursework and original research that contributes to the body of knowledge in the field. The Ph.D. is primarily for students interested in research and university teaching.
