Job Description for Mining Engineer

Mining engineers design mines. They protect the safety of all who work in a mine by researching the structure of a mine, evaluating potential health hazards and formulating ways to ensure they don't pose a threat to mine employees. They are involved in the planning of expansion of sections in a mine and in performing inspections of mine facilities to ensure they are safe. Should an inspection result in areas of a mine that do not pass safety or health codes, mine engineers are also responsible for making sure that such deficiencies are corrected in a timely manner.

Mine engineers generally work on-site at a mining location or in an office. Depending on the level of employment, a mine engineer may report to senior engineers to assist in larger tasks, or they may be the sole engineer for a facility. Educational requirements vary based on career level, but in general, the completion of a bachelor's degree in engineering is required. They usually are required to be licensed to work in a given state. Some employers want their mining engineers to have a solid background in related work experience and some require their engineers to have a master's degree. Lastly, mining engineers' work hours vary depending on the needs of their project(s). They may work a normal 9-5 schedule or work off-schedule hours as needed to fill demand.
