Event description

Description

Mine Ventilation is a required course for the Mining Engineering degree. In underground mines, the condition of air needs to meet certain quality and quantity standards; the threshold limits for the designed values are based on human safety and comfort. Maintaining a comfortable work environment is a cost-effective process, however, the condition of the underground environment directly affects the productivity and effectiveness of the workforce. This course deals with various issues of underground mine ventilation and provides the students with the important concepts and principles that they need to understand as a mining engineer. Mine Ventilation is taught at the University of Queensland with a similar structure to that at University of Adelaide, the University of New South Wales and Curtin University. These four universities deliver a common curriculum for years 3 and 4 of the Bachelor degree in Mining Engineering. Dr Saiied Aminossadati is the national Mine Ventilation course leader and coordinates the structure, design of the course materials and assessments across the four universities each year.

A/Prof Saiied Aminossadati began his engineering career in 1984, and qualified with BEng in 1989, MEng in 1994 and PhD in 1999. He joined The University of Queensland as an engineering lecturer in 2006. He is the leader of mine ventilation and fibre-optic sensing research at The University of Queensland and has successfully received several internal and external competitive research grants. He has established the first Heat, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Laboratory and the first Fibre-optic Sensing Application Laboratory at The University of Queensland. He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed Journal and Conference papers and given more than 40 oral presentations. Amin has supervised over 70 Honours and RHD students, and is currently supervising 13 PhD students and has gained international recognition for his research in thermos-fluids, underground mine ventilation and fibre-optic sensing systems. He is using his close relation with the mining industry to introduce new technologies in the industry and is collaborating with a number of national and international institutes in this field and recently organised and chaired the 2nd International OFSIS2017 Conference in Brisbane with the focus on the industrial and safety applications of fibre-optic and photonic sensors.

A/Prof Aminossadati uses an active learning strategy in this course to motivate his students to learn and understand this critical aspect of mining. He gets great satisfaction from teaching and achieves consistently high teaching and course evaluation scores. His commitment to his students’ learning has been recognised with multiple program and teaching awards and in 2017 he achieved Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

Visitors are welcome to attend any of Amin's lectures but if you wish to visit a tutorial please contact him in advance.
