The year of mining engineering studies are common to other engineering course, where students learn about basic engineering studies, mathematics, engineering drawing. .etc. From second year of mining engineering course students learn about Rock Mechanics, Underground and Surface Environment, Geomatics, Mine Safety, and Reliability, and relevant computer applications.
A passing out student of mining engineering will be aware of theory and practices and application of extracting and processing minerals from environment. They will be exposed to subjects like mineral exploration techniques, processing of minerals, and safety in mining engineering. Studies of mining on global warming have become an important field of study and research in mining engineering.
This field of engineering offers opportunities for both higher education and industry. Only big universities and government funded universities offer this course of engineering therefore it gives ample opportunities for growth and progress.
