Mining Engineering Technician

The mining industry is dynamic and ever-changing, and Cambrian's Mining Engineering Technician program challenges you to explore why and how things work and to find innovative solutions to problems.

As you learn and live in one of the mining centres of the world, you will prepare to become part of mining engineering teams responsible for a wide range of projects involving surveying, drafting, design, environmental studies, industrial geological and geophysical fieldwork, ventilation, ground control, and supervision.

Industry-experienced faculty members will guide your progress and understanding through examples gained from industry experience, field trips in the renowned Sudbury basin, and hands-on demonstrations. You will benefit from a variety of experiential learning opportunities, including activities at an active mine site, to gain a broad understanding of the various aspects of mining engineering as well as communication and leadership skills.

You will also participate in Service Type Common Core training (requires an employer sign-off for registration) as part of your practical underground learning experience.
