WHAT IS MINING ENGINEERING ?
Mining engineering is offered as a specialised branch in engineering that emphasises on the interdisciplinary aspects of both science and engineering including mine-surveying, mining mechanisation and industrial minerals. The course also deals with research in areas like of mine fire and explosions, ventilation, rock mechanics, underground and surface environment, geomatics and mine safety. The course is offered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in leading technical institutes.Expand
- For UG: Candidates should have passed 10+2 board examination or equivalent with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as core subjects.
- For PG: Candidates should have a B.Tech degree in Mining Engineering with minimum qualifying marks.
