Course Description

Course Profile

Students of Mining Engineering deal with modern subjects within the scope of mining technology (coal and ore underground, open pit and salt mining), mechanization, geomechanics, blasting techniques, natural threats (rock bursting, roof falls, underground fire prevention, methane control etc.) and geological background. With the access to the latest software and fast computers students can simulate mining conditions by the means of numerical modeling. Students are also provided with knowledge in the field of mining economics, as well as the organization and management in the mining industry. Learning modern mining technologies, they can use computer techniques and visit Polish mines.

Graduates of Mining Engineering are prepared to work in underground and opencast coal mines, mines of metal ores, salt and other minerals, and in other mining plants dealing with the mining of mineral raw materials and in the companies of underground construction. They gain full qualifications entitling them to hold top management positions in a mine. They can also find employment in research and scientific centers serving the mining industry.
