Revised Mining Curriculum Highlights

  • The review and revision of the Mining curriculum was held in consultation with HSM’s Governing Council on Mining, faculty, and representatives of the mineral resources industry in Ontario.
  • The two-year diploma program will continue to offer a solid foundation in math, geology, mining methods, mineral processing and analytical methods.
    Safety and loss control will receive even greater emphasis at the request of industry.
  • Excellent communication skills and soft skills (i.e. supervision and “people skills”) were also identified as needs in the consultation process and will be featured prominently in the new curriculum.
  • New courses in the two-year diploma program include Mining Economics, Project Management, and Ground Control and Ventilation.
    Compressed courses allowing for more industry participation, guest experts, and field trips will add to the practical aspect of the program.
