IMII Signs $1,676,000 Funding Agreement


The International Minerals Innovation Institute (IMII) is very pleased to announce the signing of a $1,676,000 funding agreement over three years for the development and delivery of five additional mining courses in threee engineering disciplines at the University of Saskatchewan.  The areas of focus are Geological, Mechanical, and Chemical, leading to the creation of three mining options for undergraduate students in those disciplines within the College of Engineering.

These new classes and programs for U of S engineering students address needs identified by IMII's members from Saskatchewan's minerals industry.  The ultimate aim of this initiative is to see the reestablishment of a full undergraduate degree program in  mining engineering, the first graduates of which are expected in 2019.  The first graduates in the Geological Mining Option program are expected in 2015, and in 2016 for the Chemical and Mechanical Engineering Programs.
