Bachelor (ISCED 2011 level 6)

Portuguese, Portugal

Duration 6 semesters
Cost 697 €/year

The production of green energy and the digital transformation of our society are based on the access to an increasing quantity and diversity of mineral resources, to be used both as raw materials and energy sources. Mining and Energy Resources Engineering seeks out these mineral resources, plans and manages their use, making use of technological innovation, namely the automation and digitalisation of processes, to produce raw materials or energy itself. The Mining and Energy Resources Engineer uses engineering tools to overcome the challenges and complexity of accessing the materials hidden in the terrestrial and marine subsoil, to make them available to society in a sustainable way.
