Pathway 8


Pathway 8 offers mobility for students studying at the University of Zagreb faculty RGNF at Mining Engineering MSc to spend their second (summer) semester at the WUST in the Mining Engineering specialization of the Mining and Geology MSc. The driving force for the UNIZG-RGNF is to extend their programme with competencies towards geomechanics and geomechanical engineering, as well as in mine modelling and project management skills for the mining operations. These are strong elements in the curriculum of the WUST Mining engineering MSc.
