The Challenge

With a growing world population and increasing global welfare, the demand for most metals and minerals is increasing. At the same time, metal and material markets are not always predictable and ore grades are decreasing over time, making the challenge to identify and extract resources within economies of scale even more complex. Adding to this complexity, awareness of environmental issues is also growing and the world expects resources to be extracted in a responsible manner. It will be up to the mining engineer of the future to operate successfully in this challenging environment.

Due to the rapid evolution of the raw materials sector, mining engineers will be expected to have a command of vital innovation and entrepreneurial competencies and skills with a deep understanding of sustainability to address these challenges. The exposure to internationally-and culturally-diverse environments has also become an appealing and desired quality, as globalization is increasingly relevant in all industries, including the mining sector and its extensive supply chains....
