Mining Engineering Certificates Granted by the Swanson School of Engineering

Since 2009, 31 mining engineering certificates have been earned (see figure below). Undergraduate certificates account for 74% of the total, and their numbers are increasing every year.  Graduate certificates account for only 6% and are directly linked to mining research projects.  Post-baccalaureate certificates account for 19%,  being largely comprised of personnel from CONSOL Energy and Alpha Natural Resources, and utilize the online learning delivery.  About half of these students have finished the program and their numbers may be reflective of the current conditions within this region’s minerals industry.
