Yes, A completed four-year Bachelor of Engineering degree or equivalent in a related discipline with a minimum GPA of 4.5. You could study master's in mining engineering in Australia.

Mining engineering courses are multidisciplinary, touching upon elements of geology, physics, chemistry, environmental studies, mathematics and economics. You’ll acquire knowledge about the exploration and production of mining processes, including related management and environmental considerations. You’ll gain a thorough understanding of the main areas of the subject, such as geomechanics, ventilation, mine planning and mineral processing. As the degree progresses, you’re likely to focus more on the management and cost estimation side of the subject, as well as surface excavation design and geotechnical engineering. 

Here are a few prerequisites for entry into the university -

  • TOEFL Marks - 79/120 With 21 in writing, 18 in speaking and 13 in reading and listening
  • PTE Marks - 58/90 With 50 in section
  • IELTS Marks - 6.5/9 With 6.0 in each band
  • Providing proof of English Language Proficiency (e.g. IELTS or TOEFL), completion of academic qualifications (e.g. graduation certificates) or provision of official documents (e.g. original or certified copies of your documents).

Curtin university is the first in Australia and the second in the world for mining engineering, according to QS Rankings by Subject 2021.

Here is the list of other universities in Australia:

  1. The University of New South Wales.
  2. Federation University Australia.
  3. Curtin University.
  4. The University of Adelaide.
  5. The University of Western Australia.
  6. The University of Wollongong.

Does this help or you want some more information?

Transitioning from Production Engineering to Mining Engineering for your Master's studies in Australia is certainly feasible. Many Australian universities offer flexible postgraduate engineering programs that welcome students from a variety of engineering backgrounds. Your first step should be to carefully research the specific entry requirements for the Mining Engineering programs you are interested in. This might include prerequisites in subjects you may not have covered extensively in your undergraduate degree. 

In your application, highlight how your background in Production Engineering has prepared you for a career in Mining Engineering, focusing on transferable skills such as project management, problem-solving, and analytical abilities. Also, consider how your career goals align with the program's outcomes, as this will strengthen your application. 

Furthermore, Australia is known for its leading research facilities and industry connections in the mining sector, providing a rich learning environment and excellent job prospects post-graduation. Preparing a thoughtful application that addresses your unique background and professional aspirations will be key to a successful transition.
