Graduate Diploma in Geographic Information Science - Posgrado en Ciencias de la Información Geográfica
This program provides professional development in mine ventilation and mine environment monitoring for mining engineers and other mining personnel. It is delivered in a distant, flexible format. The Diploma is structured to meet the needs of both the metalliferous and coal mining sectors. The accredited programs offered by UNSW for the appointment of Statutory Coal Mine Ventilation Officers in both NSW and Qld can be taken as options in the Diploma. The course contents have been developed from standard texts, industry guidelines and case studies. These are delivered from both a theoretical and operational perspective with the aim that course contents will be immediately relevant to industry. As this is a professional development course, it is essential that the student has access to a mine site with the support of industry. It is preferable that the student is working at a mine site. Assessments are geared to practical evaluation of mine ventilation systems.
