Associate Degree of Mining Engineering


CQUniversity's Associate Degree in Mining Engineering

The Associate Degree of Engineering will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills required to take on a wide variety of challenging career options across a range of industries and government sectors. As an engineering associate you will apply your knowledge of engineering principles to the testing, inspection, adaptation, commissioning, management or operation of on-site equipment, plant and systems. You may also prepare drawings or specifications for use in manufacturing or construction.

CQUniversity’s Associate Degree of Engineering focuses on project-based learning which offers you the opportunity to learn in context and graduate ready for work with industry-relevant skills. You will focus on applications and interactions within systems and combine a sound engineering understanding with modern technology to apply and adapt sustainable engineering practices for communities, society and the environment.

What am I studying?

Are you interested in a career that allows you to turn ideas into reality? Engineering and technology is about using science, maths and technology to provide solutions to the problems we face every day and improve our quality of life. Engineers are involved in the design of many everyday items that we take for granted, including electricity at the flick of a switch, a bridge to transport us over the local river and the motors that power the cars we drive.

The application of engineering and technology also extends into specialist areas including maintenance management, rail, project and program management and mining. Mining is one of Australia’s fastest growing economic sectors and a large employer both across the nation and in the Central Queensland region.

An ageing workforce, growing population and rapid economic expansion have contributed to a national shortage of engineers and technologists. This shortage equates to great employment prospects upon graduation and high-income earning potential. If you have always dreamed of working your way around the world, a career in this field provides the opportunity to do just that, because engineering and technology is a truly global industry.

If you like to design, develop, maintain, manage and innovate, then a career in engineering and technology could be for you.
