Technology and Industry

In the field of industry and technology we plan and execute continuing education particularly in the mining and minerals industry within the Oulu Mining School operations. This training is carried out in the form of TGeoPros PD Professional Development  programmes. As a multi-disciplinary university, we have the required fields of science at our disposal which enables us to arrange versatile, high level continuing education.  Disciplines like geology, physics/geophysics, chemistry and process and environmental engineering all provide us with extensive knowhow and expertise. In addition to these, we benefit from the field related expertise of Oulu business school in the development and execution of our training.

GeoPros PD-programmes are built around the lifecycle of a mine. The programmes aim at deepening and enhancing the students’ professional capabilities. The training is suitable for people in several different professions related to the mineral and mining industry.  

”It is good that this kind of training is arranged. It gives a broad overview of all the operations which fit the theme. The visits to mines are rewarding. It is good to get to know professionals in the sector and to be able to handle things together”.

Our training in the field of industry and technology has now expanded to civil engineering. In co-operation with Tampere University of Technology we arrange Master’s level education in infrastructure, transport and logistics. The first group of students will start their studies this autumn.
