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.

We strive for academic excellence in education, training and research in the domain of mining engineering to prepare the students to meet the challenges of mining industries in terms of sustainable development.

The Department of Mining Engineering is committed to,

1. Provide an ambience in which students learn, think, conduct, research, apply and achieve.
2. Impart quality training in mining engineering by incorporating innovative teaching-learning process.
