Masters in Mining

The Masters in Mining program from the Physical Sciences and Mathematics School (FCFM) at Universidad de Chile seeks to contribute to the training of the highest level engineers and geologists, who have great analytical capacities and a solid foundation on the disciplines related to the mining industria.

Researchers from SMI-ICE-Chile are among the group of lecturers of the mandatory courses of the masters program, in charge of the Sustainability in Mining course.

Mandatory Courses

Cumplen con el objetivo de entregar la formación básica del programa, común a todos sus participantes.

  • MI5041 Evaluation of Mine Sites (6 credits): The purpose of this class is to design sampling protocols for mine sites, evaluate errors in sampling collection and preparation, as well as evaluate the quantity, quality and location of resources from sample information.
  • MI5051 Sustainability in Mining (6 credits): Upon completion of the course students will be able to demonstrate their abilities for evaluation of the most relevant aspects of sustainability in a mining project. Also, they will be able to apply technical knowledge to solve and mitigate sustainability related conflicts from various origins. Finally, they will be able to propose plans and programs to improve sustainability matters in mining companies.
  • MI5071 Mining Systems (6 credits): The objective of the course is for students to understand the foundations of mining systems for open pit and underground exploitation so that they can project extraction systems at a profile engineering level  for a mine site with determined geological and geotechnical characteristics of the ore deposit.
