Mining engineers apply science, geoscience, engineering and technology to the efficient exploration and extraction of minerals from the earth, turning raw materials into valuable products. Minerals are a major component of all manufacturing and construction, and the demand for precious metals and minerals will continue into the future.
The other important area for Mining engineers is mining safety, where their knowledge of mine design and practices ensures the safety of workers, efficient extraction, and remediation at the end of a mine's life.
