Study With Us

Graduate degree supervision and coursework teaching is provided by the faculty and senior scientists of the Center of Mineral Resources Science. The Center offers unparalleled opportunities for field- and laboratory-based instruction and research in economic geology and related fields. This includes a wide range of industry-funded research projects that allow students to form close relationships with mining and exploration companies.

The Centre is closely linked with the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering, Mining Engineering, Economics and Business, and Geophysics. Many graduate students supplement their graduate coursework in economic geology with offerings by these departments.

The following programs are available to students interested in conducting graduate studies in economic geology and related fields:

The non-thesis Professional Master in Mineral Exploration Degree Program is designed primarily for working professionals who want to increase their knowledge and skills, while gaining a thorough up-date of advances across the spectrum of economic geology, mineral exploration techniques, and mining geosciences. This degree program can be completed in one academic year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.

Graduate students whishing to conduct research should enroll in the Master of Science or the Doctor of Philosophy Degree Programs. Both programs require graduate course work and the completion of an appropriate research thesis. The Master of Science program comprises two years of full-time study while a Doctor in Philosophy can be obtained over a period of three to four years of full-time study. Our graduate student conduct research in diverse geological environments and virtually in all parts of the world.
