Structure and contents of studies

80% of the study course is for the instruction of basic knowledge and skills in natural science and engineering subjects.

After four semesters, students can decide on specific modules and thus enhance their knowledge in specialist areas. The following specializations can be selected:



Repository Safety

Requirements & Matriculation

  • High school certificate qualifying for matriculation
  • 6 week advance internship
  • Self-assessment
  • Interest in natural sciences and engineering subjects

Professional perspectives

If you feel your strengths lie more in the practical field, you can start your career by completing the Bachelor degree. Graduates of the B. Sc. course in Mineral Resources Engineering work, for example, in mining or blasting engineering and for large energy providers. However, if you feel you want to enhance your skills in the raw material field, you can study for the subsequent Master degree in Mineral Resources Engineering.
