Information about Houston Baptist University mineral engineering, registering in a technical degree program, and taking free practice tests online. Engineering is one of the fastest-growing job areas, and for good reason. As the consumer electronics industry expands, engineers are increasingly in demand. If you complete the mineral engineering program, for example, there are a variety of concentrations that may appeal to you such as petroleum engineering, mineral exploration, or alternative energy. Further, due to advances in mining engineering technology, there is a growing shortage of mineral engineering graduates, and of skilled technical engineers in general. Please use the form above to request admissions info for Houston Baptist University.

Mining techniques have dramatically transformed over many years, with technological advances improving efficiency and safety. In the discovery stage of mineral exploration, mining engineers work closely with geologists to identify minerals and assess reserve quantities. Mineral engineers may then drill core samples and conduct surface surveys, searching for specific compounds and ores. Unless mineral engineering is done on public lands, the property owners may play a significant role in mining exploration.

Generally, mining is either done from the surface or underground. Surface mining requires the stripping of surface vegetation, dirt, and if necessary, layers of bedrock in order to reach buried ore deposits. Additionally, explosives may be called for in order to facilitate breakage. Hard minerals such as limestone, sand, gravel, and slate are generally quarried into a series of benches. Strip mining, on the other hand, is more appropriate for softer minerals such as clays and phosphate. In-situ mining can be done from the surface using dissolving agents, retrieving the ore via pumps. Finally, hydraulic jets may be utilized to wash away the overburden or to clear out the ore itself.

Civil Engineering Programs

Civil engineers design and oversee construction projects and infrastructure systems in both the public and private sectors. Civil engineering programs typically take three to five years, and courses include physics, mathematics, project management, design and specific topics in civil engineering. Materials science is closely related to civil engineering. It studies the fundamental characteristics of materials, and deals with mixtures such as asphalt concrete, strong metals like aluminum and steel, and novel polymers including carbon fiber. Civil engineering technicians assist civil engineers in the development of industrial and municipal infrastructure projects. The annual wage of civil engineers with a bachelors was roughly $82,220 in 2015, while civil engineering technicians with an associates degree ranged closer to $50,000 per year.

The subdiscipline of structural engineering governs construction of buildings, bridges, tunnels, and off-shore structures. This involves identifying the loads which act upon a structure, and the forces and stresses which arise within that structure due to external stresses. How can the structure successfully support and resist those loads? The structural engineer takes into account both material considerations such as strength, stiffness, and stability of the structure, as well as other design considerations including cost, safety and sustainability. Due to the nature of some loading conditions, wind engineering and earthquake engineering have developed as specialties within structural engineering.

Engineering Job Listings

The Fundamentals of Engineering exam should be taken immediately after earning a bachelors degree from an ABET-accredited program. Engineers who pass this exam are called engineers in training (EIT), or engineer interns. After meeting work experience requirements, engineer interns can attempt a second certifying exam, called the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam. Thereafter, acquisition of a professional engineering license enables management of junior engineers, the ability to sign off on engineering projects, and provide services directly to the public. Wages vary by employer and location. Aside from salary, most engineering jobs include excellent benefits, as well as retirement plans.

College Inspector is the work of a group of Thai students in Bangkok, using info from the US Department of Education, Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that has been developed for shallow, high-resolution, subsurface investigations of the earth. GPR uses high frequency pulsed electromagnetic waves to acquire subsurface information. Magnetics for Environmental Applications are used to locate subsurface iron, nickel, cobalt and their alloys which are typically referred to as ferrous materials. The technology has been widely used for quickly locating buried or subsurface cultural ferrous objects that could pose a potential threat to the environment or by assisting remediation efforts.
