Academic Courses

At the Wits School of Mining Engineering, our primary function remains the education of undergraduates to the highest international standards. 

Mining is an excellent subject to study at university and as a course is more focused towards industry than other engineering subjects. This is of considerable benefit to students who have the chance to make valuable contacts in the industry before they graduate.

Today, Wits Mining hosts an ECSA-accredited first degree, internationally recognised higher degrees in Mining Engineering covering several specialist fields of study and several certificate programmes. 

If you are a current or prospective student, kindly browse the full time and part time academic programmes we offer, and contact us should you have any questions.
