Study Details

MSc/PGDip: 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

Mining is necessary for the production of goods, for economic growth and employability, but in many cases it comes with an environmental cost. The work of geoscientists with specialist knowledge in theory and technologies in environmental management before, during and after mining is essential for reducing the impacts of this cost.

This MSc programme will provide students with training in the management, remediation and mitigation of the environmental impacts of mining.

Most high-grade orebodies have already been exploited, and contemporary mining focuses on the extraction of lower-grade ores with higher volumes of wastes. Trained geoscientists are needed to help mining companies and governments carry out mining as sustainably as possible, and to protect the environment from its potentially negative impacts.
