Mining and Geological Engineers

Mining and geological engineers design and utilize new methods and equipment for extracting minerals and ore from the earth. These engineers will often specialize in a specific mineral or ore. Mining and geological engineers must design systems and equipment that are both safe for workers and environmentally friendly. After material has been removed from the earth, the mine will be returned to a natural state. This must be taken into consideration when an engineer starts brainstorming on ways to build the mine. Negative impacts on the environment must be reduced as much as possible.
