MCC ANNOUNCES NEW ONLINE MINING COURSE
Madisonville Community College (MCC) is pleased to announce the addition of an online
mining course to the fall 2013 class schedule. Resulting from efforts to make mining
courses more accessible, MNG 102 - Introduction to Mining Engineering will be offered
as on online course starting August 19 and will provide an orientation to the mining
engineering and mining technology professions. The course includes introduction to
key mining engineering activities and functions, mining methods and equipment, and
health and safety subsystems. Randy Wolfe, lead instructor in MCC s Mining Technology
Program, notes that this course is being offered for the first time in the state
and has been developed as a collaborative effort between the University of Kentucky
College of Engineering/Department of Mining Engineering, the Kentucky Junior Coal
Academy, and MCC. It will provide students with an overview of mining engineering
for students interested in the career field or for students wishing to pursue a credential
in the mining technology program at MCC.
MNG 102 will also be offered as a dual credit course for high school students at no
cost. Dual credit enrollment requires students to have a minimum ACT score of 20 in
reading. High school students interested in online mining courses should contact their
guidance counselor for additional information.
Students wishing to enroll in MNG 102 for regular college credit should contact MCC
s Enrollment Center at (270) 824-8621 or the Muhlenberg County Campus at (270) 757-9881.
Last day to register for fall semester classes is Friday, August 16.
