DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module

The aim of the module is to provide students with a wide range of engineering skills related to the mining industry and the geotechnical and environmental consultancies. These skills are taught using specialist Masters level modules delivered by the Wroclaw University of Technology, Delft University of Technology, and University of Miskolc. These skills supplement the core geotechnical engineering provision delivered by the University of Exeter.
