Our research facilities create a unique environment for interdisciplinary research in arts, sciences, business, computing and engineering. 

By applying the science and technology of today, we are digging deeper to uncover the technologies of tomorrow. 

Highlights of our facilities


Experimental mine

The experimental mine provides hands-on experience with a variety of equipment and techniques such as conducting surface and underground mine surveying tasks, planning and blasting of drift openings, conduction of mine ventilation surveys, evaluation of mine roof conditions, and installation of roof supports.
