EDUCATION: Queen’s signs partnerships with mining colleges

KINGSTON, Ont. – Queen’s University he partnered with three Canadian colleges to help engineering and technologists and technicians upgrade their education from college diploma to university degree.

Queen’s launched its online Bachelor of Mining Engineering Technology (BTech) program in 2016. And while the program accepts graduates of any college engineering technology program, the new articulation and transfer agreements between Queen’s University and Northern College of Applied Arts and Technology, Cambrian College, and Saskatchewan Polytechnic map out a clear path to an advanced degree.

“By formalizing these partnerships, we’ve identified the eligible transfer credits and courses these students will have to take during their bridge year,” explains David Yokom, the Queen’s BTech program manager. “Candidates from these three colleges will have the advantage of knowing exactly what it will take to earn a Queen’s bachelor of mining engineering technology degree before they even apply.”

Students accepted from other institutions may have to take additional courses to complete degree requirements.

The curriculum includes surveying, mine design, management, sustainability, instrumentation and data analysis, communications, and technical writing.
