The Department of Mining Engineering was established in the year 2014. The programme envisages the development of certain skills and knowledge which are enumerated in the Programme Outcomes (POs). The programme curriculum comprising of theory, lab practical, industrial and mine visits, industrial training and project works enables/satisfy the programme specific criteria for Mining Engineering. In addition to the core mining engineering subjects, a number of program specific elective & open elective subjects have been incorporated to enable the students to attain a high level of competence and proficiency in the field of Mining Engineering. The course curriculum is not static and is periodically revised and improved to keep in time with the technological developments in the domain of Mining Engineering. Our students participate regularly in technical events organized by other institutes (IITs, NITs and other engineering institutions of the country) and get appreciation. The B.Tech & Diploma Programme enjoys a remarkable post graduate & post diploma training up to 100% every year. The department strives to remain in the forefront by regular credit based vocational training in underground & opencast mines throughout the nation in coal & metalliferous mines.

Vision of Department

To maintain the standard of mining education and commitment to produce quality human resource in the diverse field of mining, excavation engineering and other interdisciplinary areas and continuously striving to be recognized a centre for excellence for education, research and service to the mining and allied industry.

Mission of Department

  • To graduate well-educated mining engineers with sound technical knowledge and with ethical values who could excel in Mining Sector.
  • To strive for excellence in academics, research and technology and contribute to the development of region and the nation in the area of mining engineering through continuous up gradation of facilities.
  • To create human resource for developing and adopting appropriate technology in mining towards sustainable development and safe extraction of mineral resources.

Program Outcome & Objective

PEOs (Program Educational Objectives) relate to the career and professional accomplishments of passed out students after their graduation from the program. However, keeping the significance of contribution of the curriculum and the assessment opportunities such as examination and evaluation results, placement data, employer feedback and higher education entrance performance etc. are taken as tools for supplementary evidence to assess PEOs.

The program educational objectives of the undergraduate program in mining engineering take into consideration the university mission and the constituents’ needs by producing graduates who will be able to:
