The graduate of the Master Geotechnical Engineering and Applied Geomechanics in Mining , will be able to design and implement effective techniques of rock mechanics and soil for the development and execution of exploration and exploitation projects of underground and surface mineral deposits . Emphasis will be given to the stimulation of research and development of new technologies to provide geomechanical and geotechnical solutions more effective for development, sustainability and profitability of mining operations, explaining the current legislation and regulations both in the international arena and in representative countries of the region.

Duration and Modality

02 Years approximately, Virtual.


The Mining Chamber of Peru will grant the international certification to the graduate that meets all the necessary requirements.

The Postgraduate School of the National University of Huancavelica will grant on behalf of the Nation the Degree of Master's Degree in Geotechnical Engineering and Applied Geomechanics in Mining.

Our Master's Degree is recognized in 110 countries that are part of the Apostille Convention of The Hague.

What makes us different

SociaLearning 4.0: We have developed learning tools based on cooperation through social networks to find solutions to problems and case studies promoting interaction between people where they are forming dynamic knowledge exchange networks.

Integrative Work: Allows the participant to apply the topics learned in the workplace with the requirement that this impacts the mining business and not only in one process.

VirtuaLab 4.0: More than 13 years of experience in the development of mining training tools have led our IDI area to create CAMIPER VirtuaLab 4.0 where participants can enter a simulation environment of practical cases, collect data and move forward after having achieved certain tasks related to the research of the thematic area, providing a unique environment that stimulates learning. It is complemented with analysis of reports, photos, videos and statistics.

Collaborative Forum: Promotes the exchange of experiences with professionals in Latin America with what you will achieve to enrich your knowledge.
