This certificate program is designed to provide post-graduate formalized education in mining engineering. Courses cover the fundamental principles and methods of mining engineering, analysis and design of mining-related systems and mining enterprises.
Students admitted to the certificate program must take the four required courses and earn a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better to earn the certificate. Students are admitted in non-matriculated status; however, if they complete the four-course sequence with a grade of B or better in each of the courses taken, they may be admitted to the master of engineering or master of science degree program in mining engineering, if they so choose. The certificate credits taken by students admitted to the graduate degree program will count toward their master’s degree. Students who do not have all of the prerequisite courses necessary to take the certificate program will be allowed to take “bridge” courses at either the graduate or undergraduate level to prepare for the formal certificate courses.
The mining engineering certificate program is open to all persons holding a BS, MS, or PhD degree and who have a minimum of 12 months of post-BS professional employment experience. Once admitted to the program, students are given three years to complete the program so long as he/she maintains a B average in the courses taken.

Are you a working professional who wants to earn your master's degree, but you don’t have time to take the GRE/GMAT? Then start in a graduate certificate program. Graduate certificates were designed as a pathway to a master's degree.* The admission requirements are more relaxed and credit earned will count toward your degree. Once you successfully earn your graduate certificate, you can continue with the corresponding master's degree without having to take the GRE/GMAT.
This graduate certificate may act as a pathway to the following master’s programs:
*Completion of a graduate certificate program does not automatically guarantee admission into a corresponding graduate degree program. To continue in a master’s degree program, you must apply.
