The adjustment of the Mining Engineer degree to the European Higher Education Area has given rise to two degrees: a Degree in Mining Technology Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Mining Engineering.
 
Henceforth, in order to practice the Mining Engineer profession it will be necessary to be in possession of a Master’s Degree in Mining Engineering or another Degree of the same branch of engineering.
 
The Degree in Mining Technology Engineering is deeply wide-ranging and, because of its multidisciplinary character, the academic training of the graduates is transversal and stimulant of the ability to adapt quickly to any professional demand of technological and/or scientific character. 
 
This fact will allow the students to develop their professional activity in the majority of Mining Engineering fields. Furthermore, this degree is, without any doubt, the most versatile within all the degrees of this branch of engineering.
 
The degree in Mining Technology Engineering will enable the graduates to take a Master’s Degree in Mining Engineering with a significantly fewer teaching load in comparison to the other graduates coming from another degree of this branch on engineering.
