Program Overview:
Coal Mining Technology prepares the student for a rewarding career in the mining industry. The program is also offered through cooperative agreements at the following community colleges: Southwestern Illinois College, John A. Logan College, Kaskaskia Community College, Lake Land College, Lewis and Clark College, Lincoln Land Community College, and Southeastern Illinois College. The Illinois Department of Mines and Minerals, the U.S. Bureau of Mines, MSHA, United Mine Workers of America, and various coal companies have worked closely with Wabash Valley College in the development of the program.

Job opportunities for graduates in the mining industry include: maintenance foreman, repairman, miner, and various mine technician positions. Machine repair, welding, hydraulics, and electrical skills achieved in this program are transferable to occupations outside the mining industry.

The credits earned in the Coal Mining Technology program transfer into the Industrial Technology and Vocational Education Programs at Southern Illinois University–Carbondale (SIU-C). Graduates are eligible for Capstone credit through SIU-C.
