Interested in a career in mining? It is not just about mining, it is about finding a mine, building a mine, building relationships with Indigenous communities, restoring old mine sites to become productive land or maybe financing your own company or someone else’s to make the next big discovery. There are hundreds of exciting careers that can take you around the world.
There are six disciplines to choose from in the Goodman School of Mines; maybe you want to work towards a major in Mining Engineering but also want to add to that a minor in Community relations; you can do that here. We are the only mining school with programs that stretch across the breadth of the mining cycle, from discovery to ecological recovery.
