We are a hard-rock focused program with expertise in Arctic-related issues. We are also one of only a few programs that can offer expert help with unique placer
mining (mining of stream beds) needs and other mining-related topics.
Access to a real mine
In the mining engineering program at UAF, you’ll have access to a real silver mine,
where many classes conduct hands-on activities, such as surveying and rock bolt installation.

We offer internship opportunities every summer, both in Alaska and out of state.
