Mining Engineering


Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the practice, the theory, the science, the technology, and application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment. Mining engineering also includes processing minerals for additional value. Mineral extraction is essential to modern society. Hence, Mining engineers must be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with the mitigation of damage to the environment as a result of that production and processing. The department of Mining Engineering was initiated in the year 2013, with an enrollment of 60 students offering bachelor’s degree under the affiliation of Visveswaraya Technological University, Belagavi.


The Course is designed to provide the engineering expertise that is required as a mining engineer. The main responsibility of this department is to train experts and professionals who could help exploiting the substantial potential of the country in natural resources, mineral deposits, and mining prospects. The department has been actively involved in various research and development programs. It has the state-of- the art facilities and equipped with high tech laboratories. The department takes pride in having very accomplished and highly competent faculty members, who have accumulated another accolade in recognition of their contribution and specialization in some of the latest areas in Mining Engineering, including Rock Excavation Technology and Management, Mine Environment, Mine Restoration and Re-habitation and so on.

The faculty play a pivotal role in preparing students for productive, life-long careers in mining and related industries or disciplines; and to provide knowledge useful for producing the region's mineral resources, educate graduates to work in any area of the mining industry, disseminate newly acquired knowledge via publication of original research, provide professional service to the mining industry and public to assist in the environmentally responsible and safe extraction of mineral resources, and inform the public at large about the importance of mining to society.
