Why do we offer Raw Materials and Process Engineering for You?

The Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Study program in "Raw Materials and Process Engineering" provides all necessary skills for young Mongolians, who want to work in the Mining sector and the related downstream industries. GMIT students and graduates will find industry-employment in both, the processing of primary raw materials, and the recycling of secondary materials.

Why shall you study Raw Materials and Process Engineering?

The Bachelor degree program “Raw Materials and Process Engineering“ aims at providing knowledge, abilities and competencies in engineering, mathematics and natural science in order to enable you to plan, control and operate machines and process chains for refining and processing raw materials and other products in economic, ecologic and sustainable ways. Its objective is to qualify you for an application-oriented employment or entrepreneurship in the field of process engineering (and for lifelong learning).

The principles of sustainability, safety and environmental protection are inherent in all study projects and educational components. Throughout the studies, you will be educated in the spirit of responsibility towards the society, towards the economy, and towards the environment. The Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Study program in "Raw Materials and Process Engineering" provides all necessary skills for young Mongolians, who want to work in the Mining sector and the related downstream industries.

Why to get your Engineering degree from GMIT? 
Teaching and research at GMIT are characterized by strong practice-orientation and dedication to foster creative and critical thinking. This practice-orientation, the promotion of professional and personal development of its students, and the international character of our university, makes GMIT a model university in Mongolia. The Bachelor of Science in “Raw Materials and Process Engineering” is following a four years (eight academic semester) undergraduate education program with 240 Credit Points (ECTS), according European standards. The international accreditation also provides to students the flexibility of continuing their studies in the European Union and other countries later on. Because the language of instruction is English (German language comes later on, too), students are fully qualified to work in international contexts later on. Furthermore, the study programs have a strong-practice orientation. Besides lectures, students are trained in the lab as well as in the field. Excursions, meetings with practitioners and professional internships connect students to potential employers and provide insights into future career options. Last but not least, educating students who can apply international (German) expertise to local (Mongolian) context and thereby create added value is the core of engineering education at GMIT.

“Raw Materials and Process Engineering” graduates can find employment in the primary raw materials sector, e.g. responsible for the extraction of minerals in mines and for the mechanical processing of the minerals. More possible application fields for the process engineers are the chemical and the energy sector. Additionally, an option is to get employed in the process equipment manufacturing industry. Raw Materials and Process Engineers also can find their application field in the secondary raw materials sector, e.g. responsible for collection, recovery and recycling of usable waste.

A consultant (with a background in process engineering) can be in charge of conducting projects like feasibility studies for mines or economic analysis and optimization of business processes. Banks and insurances are looking for raw materials and process engineers which can help them by evaluating the trustworthiness of financing or insuring an intended big project like construction of a mine or a process plant. Finally, raw materials and process engineers can be inventors, and can carry-out patent engineering.

The B.Sc. “Raw Materials and Process Engineering” Study program provides a unique combination of different conventional Study programs along a commodity chain from the extraction of the resources, processing, preparation, separation, and conditioning of mineral raw materials to achieve a product ready for use in different applications.

Our students will become familiar with all subsystems of this commodity chain, incl. escorting and complementing subsystems like energy supply and waste recovery. The strong practice-orientation and dedication to critical thinking should give our students and graduates all instruments to work in different fields along the mentioned commodity chain. Finally, our study program is conducted by Mongolian, German, and international professors/lecturers. The official language of instruction is English. 

Following requirements are needed to join the Bachelor program at GMIT:

Completed secondary education;
GMIT English Language Examination C1 (advanced) and B2 (upper intermediate);
Mongolian General Entrance Examination (GEE) score 650 or above in both Mathematics and Physics.

If your GEE and English language exam results are under following requirements, you can join the Basic Engineering program (BEP): The Basic Engineering Program requires a score higher than 600 in Mathematics of GEE and an English language proficiency of minimum B1 (intermediate). The Basic Engineering Program helps you to improve your natural science, English and soft skills. The BEP guides you into GMIT's B.Sc. programs.

Tuition fee:
A first-class education does not come for free. GMIT students have to pay tuition fees:
B.Sc. degree program: MNT 108,000 per credit point
Accommodation on Campus (shared 4-bed room): MNT 520,000 per year

During the first four semesters, students receive a general background knowledge in science and basic engineering approaches as well as technical English. Modules in geosciences, engineering mechanics, CAD, and on rock properties prepare them for their future specialization in mineral resource topics. Building on this solid basic understanding, the students specialize in mineral resource science and technology from the 5th to the 8th semester, including the following modules:
5th semester 7th semester
  • Introduction to Mining
  • Mechanical Process Engineering I
  • Heat and Mass Transfer
  • Raw Material and Recycling
  • Health-Safety Environment
  • Electives
  • Chemical Reaction Engineering
  • Fossil Fuel Technology
  • Hydrometallurgy
  • Thermal Unit Operations
  • Academic Writing
  • Electives
6th semester 8th semester
  • Energy Systems
  • Mining and Environment
  • Mechanical and Process Engineering II
  • Industrial Internship
  • Electives
  • Process Systems Engineering
  • Final Study Project
  • Bachelor Thesis
  • Electives

The strong practical focus of this Study program is underlined by modules such as the 14 week industrial internship during the 6th semester and the final study project in the 8th semester, in which GMIT students work in a group to solve a complex challenge which is defined by Mongolian industry.
