The Doctoral Program in Mining and Geo-resources engineering focuses on a multidisciplinary, advanced and comprehensive approach to scientific or technological issues involved in the life cycle of a mineral resource. Research will preferentially concern the fundamental understanding of the basic processes that support the sciences and technologies involved in the application of engineering principles to the Earth Sciences.
The students will develop their thesis research from the first year onwards, under the orientation of a supervisor. According to their previous curriculum students may be obliged to attend specialized courses, either in normal or tutorial regime on advanced topics of interest to their research topic.
Research should include innovative aspects (or themes, or methodologies or conclusions) that represent a contribution to the development of the scientific or technological knowledge within the domain in which it is inserted.
The overall objectives of the doctoral program in mining engineering and Geo-resources are the following:
-the systematic and in-depth understanding in a particular area of Mining engineering and Geo-resources, particularly in large areas of Geo-sciences, Geo-engineering, the Geo-resources and Geo-environment;
-the development of skills to conceive, design, adapt and perform original research of high quality and worthy of dissemination in publications with peer review system;
-the development of skills to analyse, synthesize and interpret complex scientific information;
-the development of entrepreneurship and innovation capabilities.
