Why study Environmental Management in Mining?

Extraction and processing of mineral and energy resources generates a range of environmental impacts that must be managed and minimised to meet global demand for these resources. Growing global population coupled with increases in urbanisation and industrialisation ensures an ongoing demand for skilled professionals in environmental management in mining. This field of study will introduce students to the unique environmental challenges presented by mining environments and strategies for managing these environmental impacts.
