Grad students in this Engineering – Mining, Geological and Geophysical Engineering Accelerated Master’s Program are developing extraction and processing methods, making mining safer and more efficient, converting mine waste into consumer products and advancing technology for mining operations.

MGE offers master’s and doctoral degrees in mining, geological and geophysical engineering, including mineral processing and extractive metallurgy; a Master of Engineering degree; and certificates in geomechanics, health and safety, mineral processing, and mine information and production technology.

College of Engineering

The College of Engineering was founded when the University of Arizona opened its doors in 1885. Mining was the bedrock of Arizona’s economy at that time, and educating mining engineers was a top priority – indeed, it still is.

As the state’s economy grew and diversified, the College of Engineering continued to play a pivotal role in providing the research and engineering expertise necessary for that growth.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
