  Eastern Arizona College  
  The Mining Technology Training Programs at Eastern Arizona College began in 2006 as a partnership between Freeport-McMoRan and the College. The programs are designed to train entry-level technicians in several different mine-related skills:  Diesel Technician, Industrial Plant Technician, Electrical and Instrumentation Technician.  The program also offers scholarships to students accepted into one of the three certificates to cover the full-time tuition and program fees at the College.  
   
   
  Great Basin College  
  GBC students choose their courses from mathematics, science, business, and computing; humanities and social sciences; fine arts; career and technical education; health science; and community education. Full-time faculty members, part-time instructors, and support personnel are mentors, friends, and advisers of the 4,700 students who study throughout the academic year at GBC.  Elko, Nevada  
   
   
  Hobart Institute of Welding Technology   
  We are committed to helping individuals develop marketable welding skills through quality training at minimum cost.  We are also committed to making industry more Competitive by conducting training to solve welding related problems.  We strive to develop new and better welding training methods and training materials, and to make welding training available to all.  Troy, Ohio  
   
   
  Mackay School of Earth Sciences & Engineering  
  A division of the College of Science, the Mackay School of Earth Sciences enjoys a long and proud history at the University of Nevada, Reno. While offering programs in geology, geography, geophysics, geological engineering, hydrogeology and mining engineering (with options in underground and quarry mining), Mackay has expanded its scope to include research and degree programs in other critical earth science disciplines including seismology, environmental engineering and hydrology.  
   
   
  MontanaTech of the University of Montana  
  Since its founding in 1900, Montana Tech has earned a reputation as one of the finest science, engineering, and technical colleges in the world. With more than 40 academic programs and 38 clubs and organizations, Tech offers tremendous opportunities. Montana Tech is located virtually on the Continental Divide in historic Butte, Montana.  
   
   
  Penn State  
  Mining provides the mineral and energy resources for society, including coal, metallic ores, bauxite, phosphates, and salt, as well as such basic products as gravel, limestone, and stone that are essential to the nation's highways, power plants, bridges, and building foundations. Wherever productive mineral deposits are found - in remote outposts or close to metropolitan areas - the special skills of mining and mineral processing engineers are needed.  
   
   
  Rend Lake College  
THE "COMEBACK KID" GETS A NEW PLACE TO TRAIN: RLC breaks ground on coal mining center  
   
   
  South Dakota School of Mines and Technology  
  The School of Mines has a proud heritage of excellence in preparing graduates to serve as leaders in the professions of engineering and science. Award-winning undergraduate education is enhanced by graduate education and research and development in areas of critical need to the state, the nation, and the international community.  
   
   
  Southwest Virginia Community College  
  Recent shortages in electrical generation and improvements in burning technology have led to a resurgence of coal production. Expansion of the coal industry has created excellent career opportunities for individuals with technical competence and strong leadership skills. Lean production techniques require managers and supervisors to have a broad-based knowledge of all aspects of a mining operation. The Associate of Applied Science Degree curriculum in Mining Technology is designed to prepare persons for both entry-level technical positions and career growth.  
   
   
  University of Kentucky  
  UK students enjoy an enormous array of choices, with some 200 majors and degree programs in 17 academic and professional colleges available. UK is one of only a few public universities nationally to house colleges of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Business and Economics, Communications and Information Studies, Dentistry, Design, Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Health Sciences, Law, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Social Work on a single campus.  
   
   
  University of Missouri-Rolla, Mining Engineering  
  Work hard. Play hard.  It's a way of life for students at Missouri University of Science and Technology. As one of the top technological research universities in the nation, Missouri S&T is known for its focus on academics, hands-on learning, undergraduate research and innovative programming.  
   
   
  University of Utah Dept. of Mining Engineering  
  Mining provides the raw materials and energy resources needed to sustain modern civilization.  The mining curriculum combines basic engineering subjects, topics in geology and essential courses in mining to prepare graduates to discover, evaluate and develop mineral deposits.  Graduates of this program design, operate, manage, and reclaim mines and mining facilities in a profitable, safe, and environmentally responsible manner.   A career in mining engineering requires a strong background in mathematics, computer applications, economics, communication skills, and physical sciences, particularly geology, physics, and chemistry.  A strong global and domestic economy requires innovative, well-trained engineers to meet the ever-increasing demand for energy and mineral resources.  On average, every person in the U.S. requires approximately 40,000 pounds of mineral products each year.  
   
   
  West Virginia University  
  The mining engineering program at West Virginia University began in 1868 when the first mine surveying course was offered. The mine surveying course is still presently being offered. The program was accredited by ABET's predecessor in 1936 when engineering programs first began the accreditation process in the United States. The accreditation of the mining engineering program has been continuously renewed without interruption since the very beginning.
