With the strange name of Ghettoversity, the site nevertheless rounds up information on the simple topic: how to get to university to become a mining engineer. Jacob who runs the site, describes it a “a starting point of research.”
He lists a few of my writings, so here I return the favor and note his site.
The reality is that getting to university to do a mining or any other of the degrees that will get you a professional position in the mining industry is difficult.
First you will need a high school diploma with reasonably high marks. Then you need to apply to a few of the universities in your area and be accepted. Lots of money is needed to pay for tuition, books, and living. Finally get ready for at least four years of hard study.
Only then are you likely to be able to find that dream job. It is worth it, but you will need to persist.
Once you have the job, you need to keep up to date and expand your knowledge base. On good source is EduMine.
