Mining Engineering : Diploma, B.Tech
Mining Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the science, technology and application of extracting and processing minerals from a natural environment. In India, mining engineering courses includes extraction of valuable ores from the ground for processing and utilization. It involves all the phases of mining operations starting from exploration and discovery, feasibility, development, production, processing, and marketing. After that it is also required to restore and rehabilitate the land from where the extraction was done.
Mining Engineers are responsible for locating natural reserves of minerals, petroleum, and other useful natural resources and lay out the plans, device shafts, inclines or quarries for the safe extraction of these resources from under the earth. The natural resource can be coal, petroleum, metallic or non metallic minerals, etc. While planning to extract the natural resource from under the earth a mining engineer also has to keep into mind workers health, safety and welfare.
Mining Engineers are required to have knowledge of other disciplines as well. These include geology, civil and mechanical engineering, metallurgy, commerce, economics, management, law and information technology. Determining the practicality of mining an ore deposit, designing the ventilation system for an underground mine, supervising the construction of conveyors at an open pit site, researching the development of new extraction process are some of the activities involved in the mining engineers work.
