Study Details

MSc 1 year full-time

The demand for minerals process engineering is continuously growing. In order for us to obtain minerals that are pivotal to society’s progression, without causing damage to our environment, we must manage mineral development and production in a responsible manner. These valuable minerals are used to feed innovation and create products ranging from roads to mobile phones – and as the ‘provider’ of materials for production, mineral process engineers play a vital role in societal progression.
