Associate Degree of Engineering (Mining)


Become part of the mining industry

USQ’s Associate Degree of Engineering (Mining) has been developed as part of the Minerals Industry National Associate Degree (MINAD) project established by the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA). This degree will give you the freedom of choice to start up your career or be a stepping stone to further study.

You will study planning, design, testing, and the operation of open-cut and underground mines, but also get the opportunity to put your knowledge and skills into practice in class and at mining sites.
Topics include fundamental mathematics, applied mechanics, material science, engineering design, geology, geomechanics, construction, surveying, mining technology and mine planning.

Why Mining?

Mining is one of Australia’s largest and most exciting industries and gives you the option to work in some of Australia’s most exotic locations.

With your skills gained at USQ explore careers in planning mining developments, designing pit and waste areas, scheduling excavation and haulage processes, controlling and monitoring mining operations and production.

Professional accreditation

When you graduate with your Associate Degree, you’ll be eligible to apply for provisional accreditation with Engineers Australia. Apply for membership after you graduate to become an Engineering Associate (Officer) and with the experience you will gain from working in the field, you can apply for chartered status as an Engineering Officer.
