The School of Mining Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand is recognised as one of the largest mining engineering programmes in the world.

QS World University 2019 Rankings rated Wits School of Mining number 13 among the top mining schools in the world. We have one of the most successful growth rates of any of the engineering schools, consistently having an increase of students to its courses.

Our School takes pride in being one of the founding schools of the University of the Witwatersrand, and can trace our origins back to the Kimberley School of Mines. Throughout its existence the reputation of the School has been based on the quality of our graduates, many of whom have risen to hold senior positions in the South African Mining Industry and made significant contributions to its growth and technological development.

Mining is an excellent subject to study at university and as a course is more focused towards industry than other engineering subjects. This is of considerable benefit to students who have the chance to make valuable contacts in the industry before they graduate.

Today, Wits School of Mining hosts an ECSA-accredited first degree, internationally recognised higher degrees in Mining Engineering covering several specialist fields of study, several certificate programmes and hosts the Centre of Sustainability in Mining and Industry (CSMI).
