Please contact the department for details.
We have a detailed list of teaching operations needs. The MGE department would like to see industry involvement in most of its mining engineering courses. This involvement can be at several levels. The goal is to expose students to real-world problems, meet practicing engineers, get mentorship from practicing engineers, learn more about industry sectors and how companies do business, and assist faculty in providing specific lecture topics, support for laboratories and field trips, and support for distance delivery of courses.
Industry benefits by having access to students throughout their educational career, promoting their company to future hires, giving input to the curriculum to ensure specific topics are covered, tapping into young talent for design problems, and having courses delivered over the Web or video for the continuing education of their employees.
