Master of Applied Science
UBC’s Department of Mining Engineering is known for being a small, close-knit family.
Our Department is exemplified by the dedication of the faculty and staff who provide a dynamic, hands-on learning experience for both undergraduate and graduate students.
In addition to teaching, the faculty work with graduate students and staff to undertake research in all aspects of mining in order to study and improve the industry for future generations. Gifts from alumni, corporations, foundations, students, parents and other friends assist the Keevil Institute in conducting leading edge research, providing outstanding education and contributing to social and economic development [more information].

Veronica Knott grew up with no concept of mining. “We lived in downtown Toronto,” the 25-year-old says. “I could not be further from the mining industry.” That changed in 2015 when, intrigued by what she heard from students and faculty, she switched from materials engineering to mining at the...
The Mine2Me UBC team won First place at the annual Move Mining Competition at SME. Move Mining is an annual competition hosted by SME + MEC where the goal is to change the public perception of mining. Competitors from all over the world can submit a short concept video describing their idea, and...
The University of British Columbia is among a handful of global institutions to rank in the top 50 in 41 of 48 subjects tracked, according to the QS World University Rankings. UBC also ranks among the top 10 universities in the world in four different subjects amongst over 1,200 international...
Professor Arduini of the Mining Engineering Department recently invited Maptek to give a guest lecture to fourth year students working on capstone projects. Following a one-day introductory training course given at the university earlier this year, Maptek was asked to present on more advanced...
