The School of Postgraduate Studies (SPS) runs the MSc/MPhil and PhD programmes in Geological, Mining and Mineral Engineering and MPhil/MSc and PhD programmes in Geomatic, Electrical and Electronic, Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics. In addition, the School runs special PhD programmes in Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical, Geomatic, Geological, Mining, Mineral, Petroleum Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering and Mathematics for the purpose of staff development.

The Graduate Programmes aim at providing a firm grounding advanced concepts in modern methods in mining and allied engineering disciplines. Successful graduates from UMaT therefore acquire the requisite skills to solve complex engineering problems and issues associated in mining and allied engineering industries as well as other sectors of the economy. UMaT postgraduate programme is run both on full time and part time basis.

All postgraduate programmes of study in the University may require course work together with research work, leading to the award of the following:

  • Postgraduate Diploma (PgD)
  • Master of Science (MSc)
  • Master of Philosophy (MPhil)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)


The scheduled dates for Postgraduate Seminars and Synopsis for the Second Semester of the 2014/2015 academic year are given in Table 1. All Postgraduate Students are to the note the dates and inform the Secretary, School of Postgraduate Studies at least one week in advance of when they intend to present their Seminars.

Departments are now responsible for the organization of Thesis Synopsis presentation. Dates for presentation of Thesis Synopsis should therefore be arranged with Departments.

Students must make the full payment for seminars before the proposed date can be confirmed by the Secretary, School of Postgraduate Studies. A maximum of FOUR Seminars can be presented per day and priority will be given on first come first served basis.
