The Academic Mining Education in Afghanistan (AMEA) project (2014 to 2017) supports the training of highly qualified specialists and managerial staff in the Afghan mining industry. In order to use the potential of the mining industry for the country as a whole, the training of specialists, especially university teachers, in this area needs improvement. The objective of the project is therefore to modernise academic mining education in Afghanistan and to adapt it to the requirements of the market. This presentation will show the experiences made within this project by facilitating the processes of curriculumdesign in five cases over a duration of 2 years.
