Careers:Mining Supervisors


Based in Sudbury, one of the nickel mining capitals of the world, our nationally-accredited three-year program guided by industry-experienced faculty members is the only one of its kind in Ontario. You’ll gain the solid foundation and hands-on experience to become a crucial component of underground or open-pit mine engineering teams worldwide that are responsible for a wide range of projects, from surveying to geological and geotechnical fieldwork to project management and mine safety.

Your third year includes advanced courses that develop skills in scheduling and estimating, mine ventilation and services, and project management, a skill set highly valued in the industry. You’ll complete a 14-week paid co-op placement in the final semester. Accredited by Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC), graduates are recognized by the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT).
