About B. Tech In
Mining Engineering

Mining Engineering is an engineering field that encompasses the science, technology, and practical application of extracting and processing minerals from natural environments. In India, mining engineering courses focus on the extraction of valuable ores from the Earth for subsequent processing and utilization. This discipline encompasses every facet of mining operations, commencing with exploration and resource discovery, progressing through feasibility assessment, development, production

The curriculum is future-oriented and is designed as per the industry’s requirements, focusing on futuristic technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Cloud Computing.

The Department of Mining Engineering was established in Sir Padampat Singhania University Udaipur in 2015.

processing, and concluding with marketing. Moreover, it entails the critical responsibility of land restoration and rehabilitation following the extraction process.

Mining Engineers are entrusted with the pivotal role of identifying natural reserves of minerals, petroleum, and other valuable resources. They are tasked with devising comprehensive plans and layouts, including the creation of shafts, inclines, or quarries, to ensure the safe extraction of these resources from beneath the Earth’s surface. These resources can comprise coal, petroleum, metallic and non-metallic minerals, among others. Throughout the planning and execution phases of resource extraction, mining engineers must also prioritize the health, safety, and welfare of workers.

Mining Engineers necessitate a broad knowledge base that extends beyond their core discipline. This encompasses fields such as geology, civil and mechanical engineering, metallurgy, commerce, economics, management, law, and information technology. Their diverse responsibilities encompass assessing the practicality of mining a particular ore deposit, designing effective ventilation systems for underground mines, overseeing the construction of conveyors in open pit sites, and conducting research into innovative extraction processes.

HoD Message

Mining Engineering program at our University is designed to prepare industry ready Engineers with critical thinking, problem solving and leadership skills to take up interdisciplinary industrial problems for the welfare of the society at large. Mining Engineering degrees are rooted in the real world of industry and the rapidly evolving needs of the engineering sector. Our well designed course curriculum supported with excellent lab infrastructure equips students with knowledge and skills across a wide range of mining engineering topics. 

The function of the mining engineer is to apply knowledge of pertinent scientific theory, engineering fundamentals, and improved technology to recover natural resources. Mining is a world-wide activity involving the extraction of non-metallic, metal ores of all kinds, and solid fuel and energy sources such as coal and nuclear materials. In addition to mineral extraction, the skills of mining engineers are also needed in the construction industry; with its requirements of developing earth (rock) systems, tunnels and underground chambers, and the hazardous waste disposal industry are examples of such applications. The mining engineering graduate is qualified for positions in engineering, supervision, and research.

B.Tech in Mining Engineering Frequently Asked Questions

Mining Engineering is a diverse degree/career which has gained acceptance from aspiring engineers who want to do something different from core engineering. As part of the degree, student get to study elements of many different disciplines, networking events with people from the industry and field trips to visit different mines.  It is also a career which isn’t stuck in an office and gives lots of opportunities to work outside in different environments that aren’t an option for other programs.

Faculty members of the department of Mining Engineering have specialization in Underground Coal & Metal Mining, Mine Planning & Design, Computer Applications in Mining, Mining Machinery, Rock Mechanics, Dimensional Stone Technology etc.

The department of Mining Engineering has the laboratories for Mining Geology, Mine Computation, Metal Mining, Rock Mechanics & Ground Control, Ventilation, Mine Surveying, and are well equipped with the conventional and modern facilities. The department is also provided with Mine Model Lab equipped for demonstration, experimental and research purposes.

Most mining engineers are employed as a Mines Manager by coal or metal mining companies like CIL, SAIL, SCCL, Tata Steel, NLC, Aditya Birla, NMDC, NTPC, HZL, etc. in India or abroad or may get into teaching fields in colleges or universities. Some mining engineers are also self-employed and have started their own mining companies or setup a mining consultancy firm. There are also opportunities for mining engineers beyond the national boundary. Countries in the Middle East like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait provide excellent job opportunities for good mining engineers. Australia is currently facing a crisis with respect to workforce related to mining.

Mining engineers can go for MS/M Tech programmes in subjects like Mining Engineering (with many specializations in Mine Planning & Design, Mine Environment etc.), Mineral Engineering, Fuel Engineering, Reliability Engineering, Computer Application, Industrial Engineering etc. If a student wants to enter the world of business and management, he/she can opt to study MBA.
