The MSc/PG Cert Minerals Processing (Professional) qualification is part of the suite of mining programmes available at Camborne School of Mines. It is aimed at working professionals looking to gain a deeper understanding of minerals processing and how this fits into the wider mining life cycle.

The programme is designed to give each participant an insight into every part of mineral processing, from discovery, design, and recovery through to reclamation. It will enable you to gain a clearer understanding of the processes in place to ensure we manage mineral development and production in a responsible manner.
