Esteemed Mining School Adds Professional Development Course
August 22, 2014
The Camborne School of Mines (CSM), founded in 1888 and located in the English town of Cornwall, is adding a professional development course during the next academic year to extend its educational opportunities. For over 125 years, CSM has been preparing students for every aspect of the global mining industry and has become an institution for students from every continent.
The new course will be taught by CSM's team of mining experts and will be offered as a part-time postgraduate course.
Professor Kip Jeffrey who is heading up the new course told the Western Morning News, "The launch of this program is another milestone in CSM's history of mining, education and marks and important new direction not just for us, but for the industry as a whole".
The new course will mix online learning with residential workshops at CSM's Penryn campus and in mining centers around the world.
"These challenging courses are designed to meet the needs of industry staff, mining companies, regulators and professional associations alike, and our practical approach will link academics and students with consultancies, multinational miners and junior explorers to provide a broad understanding of the mining lifecycle, business drivers and technical knowledge to improve business performance and promote profitable and sustainable mining" Jeffrey said.
The new course will be open to experienced mining industry staff who has an existing degree or appropriate experience.
