Overview

Master of Applied Science - Mining Engineering

The Master of Applied Science is a Research degree requiring a thesis.   Students can specialize in any of the following areas:  social issues in mining, mining engineering, mineral processing, mining and the environment, Rock mechanics, Mine Economics, Safety, Corporate Social Responsibility, etc.

Backed by an unparalleled reputation for expertise and innovation in mineral extraction, mineral processing and environmental protection, the graduate program in Mining Engineering has two types of students in mind:

  • Those from industry who wish to improve their workplace skills; and
  • Those who wish to pursue research leading to advances in state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice mining and mineral process engineering.

In order to best meet the needs of these two groups, the program encourages interaction between universities in North America and other countries. In many cases, this collaborative outlook leads to joint research projects and student exchanges.

Students in research-based programs usually require a faculty member to function as their supervisor. Please follow the instructions provided by each program whether applicants should contact faculty members.

ENROLMENT, DURATION & OTHER STATS:

Important : 

PTE Home / Online are not accepted for application to UBC-Vancouver

IELTS Indicator is not accepted for Applications to UBC-Vancouver.

TOEFL MyBest composite scores are not accepted for applications to UBC-Vancouver.

TOEFL ibT Home is accepted for admission to UBC-Vancouver.

TOEFL ITP and TOEFL Essentials are not accepted for admission.

Minimum scores must be achieved in a single sitting of the test (i.e. scores from multiple test-taking instances may not be used to satisfy minimum component requirements.)

The GRE is not required.

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. A student who completes an approved English Language training program, but does not achieve the required assessment level has the option of taking an approved English Language Proficiency examination (e.g. TOEFL). If the student achieves the minimum score required by the admitting graduate program, they may proceed directly into the graduate program.


Academic background and requirement

A Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) or higher degree in engineering.

The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies establishes the minimum admission requirements common to all applicants, usually a minimum overall average in the B+ range (76% at UBC).
