Overview

Bachelor of Applied Science - Mining Engineering

Mining engineers focus on finding ways to extract minerals or metals from the earth. Their expertise in mining, mineral processing, and mine waste management is highly sought after around the world, wherever mines are located.

 UBC’s Mining Engineering program integrates courses on engineering principles, earth sciences, and mining and mineral processing with content covering health, safety, management, economics, and environmental and social issues.

Mining Engineering is concerned with the extraction and processing of ores containing valuable minerals or metals. To become a mining engineer, you need a thorough knowledge of general engineering principles, followed by the study of courses specific to mining and mineral processing.

 These courses are designed to cover a wide and diverse range of subjects in order to meet the challenges faced by the global mining industry. 

The program’s cross-disciplinary approach to mining is aimed at reducing the environmental impact of mining operations, improving the social impacts of mining, and increasing the efficiency of aspects of mineral extraction such as energy and water usage.

  A conditional admission allows a student to obtain a study permit (if necessary) and begin their studies in the UBC English Language Institute (ELI) or an equivalent institution approved by the Provost. Upon successful completion of the prescribed terms of study in the ELI English for Academic Purposes Program (or pre-approved, equivalent alternative), the student will proceed directly into the graduate degree program. 

Normally, a student must achieve a 75% overall assessment at the 600 level of the UBC ELI English for Academic Purposes Program (or equivalent assessment level in another approved program) to meet the terms of the Conditional Admission Program.
