Innovation in Mining Education

Professor of Mining Education Kip Jeffrey leads a team focused on developing innovative mining education both at CSM and in emerging mineral economies through a variety of strategic partnerships.

The Mining Education group is based at the Camborne School of Mines on the University of Exeter's Cornwall Campus, Penryn. We are developing innovative techniques in mining education and are particularly interested in the global skills shortage of mining professionals. The team is led by Kip Jeffrey, First Quantum Minerals Professor of Mining Education. We work closely with a diverse range of governments, industry, regulatory, education, and training organizations located around the world. Our work spans a range of initiatives including:

  • training university staff in mining education best practice
  • developing researcher networks across emerging mining countries
  • overseeing international mining skills development programmes, and
  • assisting government-level strategy in the responsible development of mineral resources

In addition, we are developing a series of new and innovative blended learning programmes for mining professionals.
