Department Highlight

Mining Engineering

“Utah has a rich mining history and the Mining Engineering Department at the U is one of only 13 accredited mining engineering programs in the U.S. Our mining engineering program educates engineers who are ready to address the resource needs of today and
the future by accessing modern technology and information systems. Our students are exposed to new mining methods and advanced mine design concepts, which help improve sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint of surface and underground mines. As we move toward building a greener and more sustainable future, our graduates will be able to design, operate, and manage surface and underground operations in a profitable, safe, and environmentally responsible manner in order to meet the present and future resource demands of the world.”
