Note: New admissions to the Bachelor of Engineering program in Mineral Resource Engineering are suspended. This Program will continue to be delivered to any admitted students until all students have graduated or the time allowed for program completion has elapsed. Any student that is dismissed or voluntarily leaves the program during this time will not be readmitted to the program.

The Mineral Resource Engineering Program concentrates on the technical, environmental and economic aspects of the extraction and processing of the Earth’s mineral resources. Students can pursue options in mineral resource engineering, petroleum engineering and mineral processing.

The main employers for Mineral Resource Engineering graduates are the mineral resource industries, oil and gas industries, financial and government institutions, consulting companies, mining equipment manufacturers and dealerships, marketing mine service companies, mineral investment and financial institutions, and research and teaching institutions. The development of an analytical attitude, team work and communication skills are important aims of the Mineral Resource Engineering Program. Participation in field trips to mining and petroleum operations in the Maritime region is a degree requirement and each student is required to share costs.
