Mine Safety Emphasis

Area of Emphasis in Mine Safety

The Mine Safety graduate program is offered in cooperation with the National Mine Safety and Health Academy (MSHA), Beckley, WV. The program is designed for underground and surface mining and is applicable to all aspects of the metallic and non-metallic mining industry. Typically students are MSHA employees and have five or more years experience in the mining industry; a technical background is required. A limited number of non-MSHA employees are permitted into the program; preference will be given to those with mining experience. The Division Chair of Applied Science Technology grants permission for admission to this area of emphasis. Only students admitted to Mine Safety will be eligible to take courses. Please contact the Division Chair for further information prior to applying for admission to this program.
