Study cycle accredited by A3ES.
LCEEMG is the first study cycle (licenciate) in mining engineering at FEUP.
It aims at the basic scientific and technical preparation, the foundation for a mining engineer with a design profile, able not only to operate but also to design a mining system in its full complexity.
LCEEMG is a first study cycle in mining engineering, designed following Bolonha's model, which integrates into FEUP's academic profile:
This licenciate study cycle is arranged in three academic years, thus:
Mining systems are very complex, being natural, social, environmental and technological hybrids. They also are physically and economically huge, having very relevant environmental, social and political impact. Thus, the understanding of present and future mining needs:
This broad supporting knowledge is needed in order to deal with mining technology and its complex primary material.
The present study cycle aims at the preparation of the scientific and technical knowledge and of the personal skills which will enable the development of a mining expert who knows, understands, operates and designs in all these dimensions.
It prepares adequate knowledge of basic and earth sciences and of transversal or specific engineering technologies which will be instrumemntal in further academic developments, towards a integrated, systemic grasp of the mining production cycle.
The master (second cycle) level is the first which, in the design framework of FEUP current mining academic profile, endows the student with full professional capacity a
As such, this first level is just the stepping stone for higher capabilities.
Upon concluding this study cycle, the mining engineering licenciate:
Thus, she will be able to engage:
The present study cycle was accredited by A3ES, in 2016, unconditionally and for a period of 6 years.
Numerus Clausus: 20
Aplication procedure: Application
Mining studies have been present in University of Porto and its engineering school since 1885, whereby the current study profile results from a permanent, consistent, prudent but also up to date evolution.
