Survey of International Mining Engineering Programs (April 2010)

The Education Committee of the Society of Mining Professors (SOMP) is continuing to gather an up to date, and internationally comprehensive database of mining students, staff and graduates, in order to provide both educators and industry with a more factually-based assessment of the status of this education sector and trends in teaching and graduate numbers.  The first such survey was conducted in February, 2008, and it is intended to survey international universities on an annual basis in the future.

This survey has been designed to be as simple as possible, so as to minimize the amount of time required to complete it.  Copies of the processed survey results will be available to all contributors.

Thank you in advance, in anticipation of your co-operation and your contribution.  If you are aware of other institutions in your country who may not have received this survey, it would be appreciated if you could forward the survey to them, or complete a survey on their behalf, with their agreement.

Please complete the survey in English.

If you have completed either the 2008 or 2009 surveys (including statistics up to end 2008), there is no need to repeat the historical statistical data in Part C, Q8.  Simply complete the introductory Parts A and B, then skip straight to Part C, Q8 to provide the data for the latest completed year (2009).  If this is the first return, please provide as much of the additional rows of historical statistical data as is readily available.

Please email your completed survey form, no later than 23rd May, 2010, to:

Professor Bruce Hebblewhite
School of Mining Engineering,
The University of New South Wales, Australia

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the above email address.  Thank you in advance, for your assistance with this survey.

Survey of International Mining Engineering Programs
(April, 2010)

Survey Period: 2009 Year

(Please complete one of these surveys for each Mining Engineering Program, reflecting the status for the calendar year 2009, i.e. as at December, 2009).

(Part A: Mining Program)

1.                  COUNTRY: …………………
(eg Australia)

2.                  UNIVERSITY/INSTITUTION:………………
(eg The University of New South Wales)

3.                  NAME OF DEPARTMENT/SCHOOL/UNIT: ………….
(eg School of Mining Engineering)

4.                  NAME OF DEGREE AWARDED: …………………………
(eg Bachelor of Engineering (Mining))
(Please only include data relating to Programs leading to a recognized/accredited primary mining engineering degree)

5.                  MINIMUM NUMBER OF YEARS REQUIRED TO GAIN DEGREE
(on full-time basis):……
(eg   4)

(Part B: Academic/Teaching Staff – as at December, 2009)
(When answering Q6, please down-rate the numbers, if staff involved are shared in their teaching across multiple primary disciplines, eg if a person teaches equally into both a mining engineering program and a geology program, then only count them as a fractional figure in this survey (0.5 for example against mining engineering).  However, do not down-rate for share of other postgrad or research activity – it is assumed that all academic staff carry a normal load of this nature.)

6.                  NUMBER OF FULL-TIME (or f/t equivalent) ACADEMIC/TEACHING STAFF INVOLVED IN TEACHING THE ABOVE PROGRAM AT EACH LEVEL:
Professors: ………………………. (eg  1)
Associate Professors: …………… (eg  1)
Senior Lecturers: ……………….  (eg  6)
Lecturers: ……………………….  (eg  1)
(Others): …………………………  (eg 1.5)
TOTAL: …………………………  (eg  10.5)

7.                  PERCENTAGE OF ABOVE TOTAL STAFF NUMBER WHO ARE FEMALE: ………………………………
(eg  0%)

(Part C: Student and Graduate Numbers)

8.                  PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING TABLE, WITH 4 ENTRIES, PER YEAR.  THESE ARE AS FOLLOWS:
(a)               Number of new students who entered/commenced this mining program for the first time.
(b)               Proportion of (a) who were female (%).
(c)                Number of students who completed and graduated (or were eligible to graduate) from the program during the calendar year.
(d)               Proportion of (c) who were female (%).

(Please complete this table for 2009 numbers.  It would also be of great assistance if you are able to provide data from previous years, using the same table, if available – if you have not already done so).
