Overview

Associate Professor Mehmet Kizil is currently the director of Teaching and Learning for the School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering at The University of Queensland. He also leads the Mining Engineering Program. Mehmet received his bachelor of mining engineering from Dokuz Eylul University in Turkey in 1986. He then went to England to complete his PhD with the University of Nottingham. In 1993, he returned to Turkey where he worked as assistant professor at the University of Dokuz Eylul. Mehmet joined UQ in 1996 and since then has contributed to the education of more than 500 mining engineering graduates.

A national award-winning lecturer, Mehmet’s teaching and learning innovations have been recognised by both students and colleagues achieving numerous School, Faculty and University teaching awards. In 2008 and 2010, he received teaching awards from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. He has past experience as an Engineering Researcher and Academic in universities around the world, including the United Kingdom, Turkey and Australia.

Mehmet’s teaching and research interests are in the areas of:

• Mine planning and design

• Mining systems - production analysis and improvement

• Computer applications and virtual reality in mining

• Mine ventilation

Research Interests

  • Mining Education
  • Improving Safety and Productivity of Mining Operations Using Virtual Reality Techniques
    The major aim of this project is to introduce Virtual Reality into real-time site monitoring systems in order to provide interactive and visually accurate, dynamic 3D models of a mine site and its operations. The outcome will greatly improve safety, productivity and mine monitoring.
  • A New Approach to Roadway Dust Analysis
    Colorimetric analysis of roadway dust is currently a method for monitoring the incombustible content of mine roadways within Australian underground coal mines. The aim of this research is to develop an alternative approach to roadway dust analysis.
  • Development of an Alternative Testing Method for Measuring Gases from Coal Samples
    The ultimate outcome of this project is a state-of-the-art portable gas analyser, which identifies within a few minutes a range of different coal seam gases and measures their concentrations directly at the point of sampling, coring or extraction.
  • Accident Reconstruction using Advanced Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality Techniques
    Accidents still happen with great frequency and severity. The SMI-VR research group has been investigating accidents by reconstruction using advanced computer graphics and virtual reality techniques to improve the safety performance of the minerals industry. This way people can then understand: how and why the accident happened; how it could have been prevented; and how injuries or fatalities could have been avoided.
