Educational program 6B07206 “Mine surveying”

Training of specialists engaged in mine surveying and geodesic control for proper high quality mining excavation processes with the introduction of digital technologies.

Scope of professional activities

Mine surveying is a branch of mining science, which includes measurements on the surface and in mine workings, carried out during the exploration and operation of deposits, construction of mining enterprises in order to build plans and drawings of the studied objects, as well as to solve mining geometric problems.

The qualifications of mine surveying specialists have always made it possible to work almost immediately at any mining enterprise in the country:

  • underground gold mine with various systems of development;
  • open-pit mining of placer deposits by overburden method with the use of hydromonitors or dredge method;
  • coal mine with flat, inclined or steep seams;
  • open-pit (quarry) mining of coal, ore or other mineral deposits;
  • development of oil and gas fields;
  • underground transport construction.

In addition to the above-mentioned industries, a mine surveyor can work in all related professions, both geodetic surveying and mining. And there is a choice to work, for example, as a surveyor in all kinds of geodesic, construction, scientific, educational, research enterprises or as a mining engineer, foreman in mining enterprises.

The field of professional activity of specialists includes engineering support of human activity in the Earth’s interior during operational exploration, extraction and processing of solid minerals, construction and operation of underground facilities for various purposes.

The objects of professional activity of specialists are:

  • subsurface resources of the Earth, including production facilities, equipment and technical systems for their development;
  • techniques and technologies to ensure safe and efficient implementation of geotechnologies and extraction, processing of solid minerals and rational use of underground space.
