Mining geomechanics is a key branch of mining engineering which considers the ground conditions when developing safe and economical mines. Mining geomechanics require knowledge of mining geology, mine planning, mining methods and economic, legal and regulatory requirements. Specialists are in constant demand for the development and operation of both underground and open pit mines.
Our postgraduate courses in mining geomechanics are designed to meet the needs of mid-career resource sector professionals, specifically practising mining, civil and geological engineers, and mine and engineering geologists, who seek more senior management or decision-making roles. The courses are highly industry focused and taught by Australian and international lecturers with a broad range of professional experience.
