Delve Deep in a Global High-Tech Industry
Mining is one of the oldest forms of engineering, but these days autonomous 400-ton trucks are doing the heavy lifting to supply materials for green technology and construction, high-performance computing systems, improved urban infrastructure, smart manufacturing and space exploration.
MGE at the University of Arizona is one of the top-ranked mining engineering programs in the nation. Longstanding industry ties, a focus on sustainability, generous scholarships, a mine of its own, global connections and a tight-knit, entrepreneurial community make this the destination of choice for students the world over.

Benefits of Industry Ties
“The UA did a great job of exposing us to people from the industry, so it wasn’t a huge culture shock for us.”
Students Ahead of the Curve
“Many students graduate from college with no real mining experience and do not have the credibility to manage mine operations, but UA graduates are already ahead of the curve.”
Modern Mining at Its Best
“Our graduates are ready to carry on the next generation of American mining.”
