Get on the fast track to management and executive positions through a master of engineering degree in mining engineering. Graduates of Missouri S&T’s mining program are leaders in their fields and pursue careers in raw material production, all aspects of mining (coal, metals, aggregates etc.) and related fields, highway, dam and power station construction, and weapons systems. This program is one of the best in the nation. A total of 30 credit hours are required to complete the degree, which includes a limited research component. Through this program, students acquire an advanced understanding of mining processes, an ability to design and select equipment for specific operations and an ability to use cutting-edge engineering tools and knowledge to solve mining-related problems in an economical, safe and efficient way.
This program takes advantage of current developments in online learning; however, for students enrolled in a laboratory section, there may be a three-day to one-week laboratory session required on the Missouri S&T campus.
