Social economic growth and the increasing demand for mineral resources have promoted the development of metallic mineral processing technology. Therefore, in order to satisfy the demands for development in mining, cultivating comprehensive mineral processing engineering professionals with strong innovative practical skills has become the top priority in current education. We have established a new course, “Metallic Mineral Processing,” for students majoring in mineral processing engineering in universities, with coal and other sources of energy as the main focus. This paper analyzes the purpose and significance of setting up this course and the exploration of the reform of the teaching mode, with the aim of improving the teaching quality and ensuring the cultivation of mineral processing engineering undergraduates.
