A graduate has a broad knowledge on prospecting, documenting and evaluating of mineral deposits. Student after graduation is able to plan and perform an exploration program depending on genetic type of deposit and searched elements as well as controlling process of excavation of ore horizon. Knowledge acquired during studies allows to choose optimal field and laboratory as say methods necessary for both prospecting and documentation reports. A graduate knows how to perform a field works, and is familiar with methodology of different sampling methods. Theory knowledge is not all. During studies, graduate takes part in obligatory field works and diploma field works. Place of diploma field works depends on his/her thesis (in last few years, graduates had diploma field works in Poland, Ukraine, Kosovo, Slovakia, Australia, Laos and Mongolia).
An Economic Geology graduate has knowledge to evaluate collected samples under the microscope, choose samples for further chemical assay and evaluate results, described drill core (logging) and evaluate mineral deposits including, and calculate resources and reserves based on 3-4D model of deposit. Knowledge acquired in Economic Geology studies allows him/her to use the newest software to present all sort of data as maps, diagrams, profiles, controlling validation of extracted mineral commodities and cooperate with miners fulfilling geological service. A graduate is also familiar with software for mineral deposit modeling, reserve calculation and open-cut and underground mining management.

AGH-UST, established on 20th October 1919, until 1949 known as the Academy of Mining, founded after long-lasting endeavours which had started in 1782, the year when the Ore Commission was established, has been continuing the traditions of the Academy of Mining in Kielce (1816-1827), inaugurated by StanisBaw Staszic. The University, being a technical school, serves the science and industry through educating students, the development of academic staff, as well as research and development. The University cherishes its traditions and educates its students to be honest and responsible people both at work, and as members of the society, according to its motto: "Labore creata, labori et scientiae servio" (Created in labour, I serve labour and science.)
