A broad study of surface and underground mining technology methods. Mining terminology. Selection of representative mining methods including relative economics. Typical mining facilities and equipment. Mine safety and environment management.

Mining engineers plan and manage operations to exploit minerals from underground or open-pit mines, safely and efficiently. They design and direct mining operations and infrastructure including: drilling; blasting; loading and hauling; tunnel creation and maintenance; access road planning and maintenance; water and power supplies. Mining engineers may supervise other engineers, surveyors, geologists, scientists and technicians working on a mine site and may find employment in metropolitan or regional locations or in different countries.

For more than a century, Curtin University's Western Australian School of Mines (WASM) has been committed to providing some of the World's finest mining and minerals education and facilities. With campuses in Perth and Kalgoorlie, its objective is a simple one: to meet the education and research needs of one of Australia's most important industries.
