Mineral Resource Engineering concentrates on the technical, environmental and economic aspects of the extraction and processing of the earth's mineral resources. It has a strong industrial and research interest in underground and surface mining for coal, oil shales, metals, gold and industrial minerals, and in mineral processing. Studies in reservoir engineering, offshore drilling and production of oil and gas complement the program. Mineral Resource Engineering prepares engineers for a career in advanced mine design and planning, rock mechanics, ground control, processing techniques and drilling engineering.

The most extensive exposure to research is provided through the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. Students accepted to the PhD program normally have an MASc degree indicating "excellent" knowledge and research ability. The major study requirement is a thesis based on original research, the results of which are given in written thesis and defended in an oral examination. The thesis work is complemented by a minimum of four courses and a seminar. Candidates must pass a written and oral Comprehensive Examination following completion of their coursework. The University requires at least two years (24 months) of full-time attendance.
