In keeping with the collaborative approach of the NBK Institute of Mining Engineering, one of the Department’s greatest strengths lies in its ties with Canada’s mining industry. NBK Mining Students

Most of our students have opportunities for industry employment and participation in research activity at working mines.

This hands-on approach helps our students develop practical skills and gain exposure to valuable case histories. Also, many of our faculty members are active within industry through consulting activities and involvement in professional societies relating to mining.

The end result is an innovative, industry-responsive and internationally recognized graduate program of the highest caliber.

Coursework is selected in consultation with the student’s supervisory committee. All doctoral students are required to successfully complete a comprehensive examination. The major requirement for the Ph.D. is completion of a research thesis which meets the Faculty of Graduate Studies requirements.
