Entry requires a 4 year (Honours) degree in Mining Engineering or a cognate discipline from a recognised institution, or satisfying the requirements of the UNSW Graduate Diploma in Mining Engineering (MINE5040FS and from 2015: MINE5335) with a minimum WAM of 65% and no course fails.
The UNSW School of Mining Engineering defines a cognate discipline as Engineering Geology, Civil Engineering or Geotechnical Engineering. Performance that is equivalent to Honours (I or II Division 1) is required over the final two (2) years of the degree. Professional experience in the mining industry will be highly regarded.
International students will be required to submit to the Program Authority, a proposed plan listing courses for each semester of their program. Signed approval by the Program Authority is required prior to commencement of the program. The approved plan is to list courses completed as block intensive mode or distance mode, and to ensure that the total number of distance mode courses is no more than 1 course per semester.
