Co-op Program

The program consists of two 8-month and one 4-month work terms requiring 5 years to complete instead of the conventional 4 years.

About half our students participate in the Co-Op Program. The Co-Op Office places students in mining engineering-type jobs with companies around the world.

UBC Mining Teams

The UBC Underground Mine Rescue Team (the Team) is made up of undergraduate students from the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering.
These dedicated individuals have committed much personal time and effort to learning, executing, and upholding the utmost safety standards. learn more about the UBC Underground Mine Rescue Team, please visit the website at the link below:

UBC Mine Rescue

The Canadian Mining Games are an annual academic and technical competition between students from the ten major Mining Engineering programs across Canada. Each year, the top students from these schools compete in twenty-five competitions over three busy days. UBC has had a strong performance in recent years at the games, winning both the 2016 games in Vancouver as well as the 2017 games in Toronto.

Field Trips

Every year the 4th Year graduating class plans and fund-raises for a field trip to a mining region overseas. These trips can be summed up in one word: AMAZING!

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that for many students these trips are probably one of the best experiences of their lives.
