With just one representative each, the Netherlands, France, Italy, and Spain follow; of the four, only the Netherlands is home to a mining engineering school in the top 20, while the rest are all new to the ranking, and include notable entrants such as Université PSL (Paris Sciences & Lettres) (21st), Politecnico di Torino (24th), and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (34th)
Australia is currently home to eight top mining engineering schools, with six excellent performers in the global top 20. Other notable Australian representatives in the ranking this year include the University of Adelaide and the University of Newcastle, ranked joint 26th and joint 40th respectively for this subject
In Latin America, Chile is home to the highest-ranked university for mining engineering (Universidad de Chile), as well as Universidad de Concepción, which ranks 29th. Mexico’s only representative, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), went up a promising eight places this year to rank in the global top 20 for the subject, while Brazil’s only representative, Universidade de São Paulo (USP), maintains its position at 33rd
Heading east to Asia, China harbors three of the world’s best universities for mining engineering, with Nanjing University and Wuhan University being its best performers, both having shot up from joint 43rd place to now rank 25th and joint 26th, respectively
India is also home to two top mining engineering schools, one of which – Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) – is a notable new entrant in 38th place, and also ranks 162nd in this year’s QS World University Rankings.
And finally, South Africa’s University of the Witwatersrand (in the global top 20), is Africa’s only representative in this year’s mining engineering ranking, while Saudi Arabia is the only Middle Eastern nation featured, with King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM) as its representative in 37th place (up three spots from last year)

Consolidating engineering, economics and science capabilities to form WA School of Mines: Minerals, Energy and Chemical Engineering, the School attracts strong industry partnerships and investment in high-tech facilities, operating from campuses in Perth and the historic mining town of Kalgoorlie located in the Goldfields region of Western Australia
Teaching is focused toward mining and metallurgical processing operations, which encompass the conversion of mineral and chemical resources into metallic, refining and processing to produce high-performance materials for applications from consumer products to automobiles, aerospace and electronics
Chemical engineering involves finding the best sequence of chemical and physical processing operations, and the right operating conditions, to convert raw materials into higher-value products. It covers the development, design and management of processes and equipment for the extraction, conversion and upgrading of materials
Petroleum engineers decide on the best way to extract oil and gas from deposits below the Earth’s surface. They work closely with other professionals to understand the geological and geophysical characteristics of particular reservoirs, before designing, testing and implementing the most effective and profitable extraction method for that site
Exploration geophysics is an applied branch of earth sciences that utilises physical phenomena to remotely image and characterise the subsurface, with applications in mining, oil and gas, geothermal, groundwater and carbon underground storage industries
Mineral and Energy Economics offers postgraduate courses for energy and resources sector professionals looking to advance their career and originated within the WA School of Mines in Kalgoorlie, a prominent mining town for over a century
In the Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking (Energy and Natural Resources) 2019, Curtin University is ranked number one in Australia and second in Oceania for its Master of Science (Mineral and Energy Economics)
The WA School of Mines has a very active WASM Alumni for all graduates who have studied within the School; whether Geology, Spatial Sciences, Exploration Geophysics as well as for Mining and Metallurgical degrees or post grad certificates. The WASM Alumni have a Branch that represents graduates and supports student with career mentoring, work experience, scholarships and networking opportunities at both the Perth and Kalgoorlie Campus. WA School of Mines students are eligible for free membership, please visit the website for more information

A Distance-learning master's options provide many opportunities for career advancement. Fully online self-paced study offers employed students the time flexibility needed to balance work and studies. By using the latest advancements in communication technology, online masters open the way to new business opportunities by building networks of students with common goals. Remote studies offer lower tuition fees, while preserving content quality and teacher involvement as on campus master’s programmes.
Distance or online learning is a mode of study that allows students to study most or all of a course without attending at a campus-based institution. Distance can refer to both material and interaction. Distance learning provides access to learning when the source of information and the learners are separated by time and distance, or both.
During this type of education students communicate with the faculty and other students via e-mail, electronic forums, videoconferencing, chat rooms, bulletin boards, instant messaging and other forms of computer-based interaction.
The programmes often include a online training system and tools to produce a virtual classroom. The tuition fees for distance learning vary from institution to programme to country. It is certain that the student saves expenses related to accommodation and transportation, because you can maintain your current living expenses. Distance learning is also a great solution for people that already have a job, and still want or need further education.
