MTEC Key Performance Measures Report 2017

The Minerals Teritary Education Council (MTEC) today released its Key Performance Measures Report for 2017.

Undergraduate intakes for most minerals higher education disciplines in Australia have experienced notable declines. Lower bulk commodity prices, rationalisation at the company level, the rise of anti-mining activism and the way that these issues have been widely covered in news and social media, have likely contributed to a post-boom sentiment that might explain the pronounced drop off in enrolments over the past few years since 2012.

Mining engineering enrolments continue to be dramatically lower in the 1st year and are at their lowest since 2000. This will result in significantly decreased graduates in coming years, following consecutive years (2012 and 2013) of highest ever enrolments and ensuing graduates in this discipline. Metallurgy enrolments similarly are at their lowest since 2000 years with fewer graduates expected in forthcoming years.

MTEC modelling for the next four years to 2020 indicates a significant drop in enrolments in the vital minerals-related disciplines of mining engineering and metallurgy.
