Geomatics for Mineral Resource Management focuses on the process of resource modeling and mine management. Students will be taught a variety of subjects related to the field of mining and mineral resources. This includes financial, environmental, political as well as legal aspects of national and international mining projects. In addition to the standard courses taught by staff from partner universities and industry experts, massive open online courses are offered for the students. The massive open online courses consist of a series of web-videos, which cover the content of an individual course. The educational content focuses on the following pillars:
Sensing technologies for mine data gathering,
Spatial (big) data management and visualisation and
Spatial (big) data analysis and modeling. The aim of the programme is to enable students to integrate these three pillars into innovative Geo monitoring concepts. Students, who decide on the specialisation Geomatics for Mineral Resource Management, are, on default, set to study 2 semesters at Wrocław University of Science and Technology (1st and 4th semesters) and 2 semesters at TU Bergakademie Freiberg in Germany or two semesters at Montanuniversität Leoben in Austria (2nd and 3rd semesters) and are going to graduate with a double MSc diploma.
Thus graduate of this master program will be prepared to work in an international and multicultural environment in mining and exploration companies, technical supervision authorities, public administration offices, research and development institutions, everywhere were advanced and state of the art Interdisciplinary knowledge of mining and geology, computer-aided design, geomatics are required.
Requirements: the programme is meant for holders of a Bachelor's Degree in Mining and Geology as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Geodesy and Cartography or related engineering disciplines. Each application is assessed individually on its merits. If in doubt, please contact an Admission Officer.
