  • Objectives
    This program aims to provide an integrated education pathway into underground or surface coal mine management. The program incorporates university engineering management and safety, science courses and (dependent on specialisation) statutory black coal competencies. The four year part-time program is designed to develop the skills and knowledge to meet the needs of underground or surface coal mine management. This program has generic, management and technical components that will enable graduates to contribute to and participate in underground or surface coal mine management, depending on the specialisation studied.
  • Entry requirements
    Prerequisites - All students are required to be employed in the mining industry, in work appropriate to their course of study.
  • Academic Title
    Associate Degree of Mine Operations Management (Specialisation)
  • Course description

    About Mines Operation Management

    Queensland has vast resources of minerals and energy. There are bands of coal rich strata from Collinsville in the north to Milmerran in the south. Queensland is Australia’s largest producer of coal and Australia is the largest exporter of coal in the world. Growth in the minerals industry needs people with technical skills to develop and operate mines in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner.


    Career Opportunities

    Graduates would be expected to find employment in underground or surface coal mines (depending on specialisation) throughout Australia.

    For students studying the underground specialisation, the University courses plus the black coal competencies in this program are aimed to meet the educational prerequisites to be eligible to sit for the examination of the Board of Examiners for the First Class Mine Manager’s Certificate of Competency (Underground Coal Mines, Queensland).

    For students studying the surface specialisation, the black coal competencies in this program are aimed to assist Site Senior Executives in ensuring mines have persons with appropriate competencies to manage mines safely and efficiently.
