The School program

For maintaining the University current status ofoffering a leading undergraduate degrees, the course outlines have been established for both, Geology and departments. Each program is to be covered in four years (8 semester) and consists of 480 credits.

Basically, the Programmes of Bachelor of Sciences in Geology and mining aim to provide students with the solid practical and technical basis in all the key areas of the geological exploration and Mining profession. It is anticipated that the graduated students from the school will be equipped with excellent oral, written and graphical communication, development of self-organized study, research and professional capabilities of management, planning, organization and teamwork.The four-year programs for the Mining engineers and Geologist are outlinedas follows:
