Engineering

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

You can only be in a position to solve advanced engineering problems if you have PhD training in engineering. To be admitted as a doctoral student, one must hold a masters degree in the Engineering or related subject and pass a comprehensive entrance exam.

Canada is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean.

Doctor of Philosophy in Mining Engineering

University of British Columbia - Faculty of Applied Science
Campus Full time 4 years May 2018 Canada Vancouver

Backed by an unparalleled reputation for expertise and innovation in mineral extraction, mineral processing and environmental protection, the graduate program in Mining Engineering has two types of students in mind: those from industry who wish to improve their workplace skills; and those who wish to pursue research leading to advances in state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice mining and mineral process engineering. In order to best meet the needs of these two groups, the program encourages interaction between universities in North America and other countries. In many cases, this collaborative outlook leads to joint research projects and student exchanges. [+]

Backed by an unparalleled reputation for expertise and innovation in mineral extraction, mineral processing, and environmental protection, the graduate program in Mining Engineering has two types of students in mind:

Those from industry who wish to improve their workplace skills; and Those who wish to pursue research leading to advances in state-of-the-art or state-of-the-practice mining and mineral process engineering. What makes the program unique?

In keeping with the collaborative approach of the NBK Institute of Mining Engineering, one of the Department’s greatest strengths lies in its ties with Canada’s mining industry.

Most of our students have opportunities for industry employment and participation in research activity at working mines. This hands-on approach helps our students develop practical skills and gain exposure to valuable case histories. Also, many of our faculty members are active within the industry through consulting activities and involvement in professional societies relating to mining.... [-]
