Bachelor of Mining Engineering Technology

The Bachelor of Mining Engineering Technology (BTech) is a diploma-to-degree program for engineering technologists who want to take their careers to the next level. It combines technical expertise with the managerial and problem­-solving skills the industry needs from the next generation of mining professionals, in a flexible online learning format.

BTech’s online format can be taken at a full, or part-time pace, letting you keep working while you learn, so you don’t have to leave your job to take that next step forward. In addition, two summer field school sessions allow students to develop hands-on skills with current mining technology, while also gaining experience working in a group environment.
