Department of Mining Engineering

Mining Engineering deals with the extraction of minerals safely using scientific methods. While the conventional method was to extract coal or non-coal minerals from depth, technological changes have helped extract from opencast mines.  Today, over 95 percent of Indian coal is from opencast mines. The history of mining dates back to the Harappan civilization, and today digital technologies to mine from greater depths safely and efficiently. Safety is one of the primary objectives of teaching mining engineers who hold statutory positions to mine.

Mining engineering broadly covers various safety aspects of mining. It covers all technical and statutory aspects related to mine ventilation, mine planning and economics, mining machinery selection and operation, rock mechanics, design of opencast mines, mine surveying, computer applications, rock fragmentation, processing of blasted ore, sustainable mining methods, etc.
