Pathways 12 and 13 establishes the mobility between the mining engineering MSc programmes of the University of UNIZG-RGNF and the AGH-UST. Pathway 12 is for students from Zagreb Mining and Geotechnical Engineering MSc to Krakow Mining Engineering MSc. Students from Zagreb can use the mobility window in their second (summer) semester. Drivers for networking from the side of the University of Zagreb are to widen the knowledge especially in underground exploration and operation practice as well as in project management, CAD and IT, soft skills, interdisciplinarity.

Rudiments of mining
- Objectives: Role of mining for the global economy. Geological characterisation of orebodies in relation to potential mining technology. Scope and various types of mining activity. Typical mining equipment and their application. Mining and natural threats associating the technology. Examples of different mines ideas.
Raw minerals in ecosystem, classification according to industrial demand. Rock and rock-mass properties influencing selection of underground technology. Geological and geometrical parameters of mineral deposits and their role for technology. Geological reserves, classification, cut-off grade. Cutting, excavating, winning and drilling techniques utilized underground. Types and use of underground excavations, roof support, lining and enforcement methods. Models of underground mines, infrastructure. Back filling technologies. Natural threats and prophylactics, environmental impact. Underground space for civil utilization.
An example of development of the regular orebody. Determination of the main technological parameters of the deposit exploitation (eg. Resources, daily output and progress, the number of the indicative roof, surface deformation indexes) and choice of the equipment in longwall panel caving in particular shearer loader, armoured face conveyor and powered roof support.
