Career Summary

Ive chosen to go into a career of mining engineering. I plan to go to the University of Kentucky to pursue a degree in mining engineering. The education required for an entry level position in this field is a 4 year degree. After 4 years, some people stay in college to get a NBA degree. Mining engineers work mostly in mining operations in remote locations. However, some work in sand-and-gravel operations located near larger cities.

Mining engineers design the mines to ensure safe and efficient removal of materials from the mine. The average mining engineer as of 2010 had a salery of $82,870 per year. The employment of mining and geological engineers is expected to grow a full ten percent from 2010 to 2020. I found this information using the website bls.gov.
