Master of Geomechanics and Geohydrology

The Master of Geomechanics and Geohydrology is a response to the growing need for engineers and scientists with expertise in these areas by Australia's surface mining industry and recognises the increasing importance of these skills to mining world-wide.

The course provides students with a thorough understanding of the physical and environmental processes affecting surface mine operation and management and the tools applicable to their analysis. To achieve these aims, the development of appropriate analytical skills and practical knowledge is stressed together with the understanding of the technical issues surrounding mining's impacts on soil, rock and groundwater behaviour and the role of groundwater in mine development and operation.
