Mining Engineering

Course Description :

Mining engineering is one of the most interesting branches of engineering which studies general engineering course followed by professional mining classes in drilling and blasting, materials handling, rock mechanics, mine health and safety, mine ventilation, mine cost engineering, reserve analysis, operations analysis, mine planning and minerals processing.

Mining engineers plan mining operations and design underground and surface mines. They also design mining equipment and supervise technicians and workers who use it. Most mining engineers work for firms in the coal and metal industries. Some specialize in just one of these industries. Engineers can work for companies that make mining equipment. Others work for government agencies that regulate the mining industry. Mining engineers supervise the mining operation. They train crews of workers and supervisors. Engineers and engineering technicians inspect mines to make sure that the roofs of underground mines are supported correctly and that the air in mine shafts does not contain poisonous gases. These engineers may also inspect and repair mining equipment. Some mining engineers help to plan ways of restoring the land around mine sites so that it can be used for other purposes.

Mining engineers may specialize in designing equipment used to excavate and operate mines. This equipment includes ventilation systems, earth- and rock-moving conveyors, and underground railroads and elevators. Engineers also design equipment that chips and cuts rocks and coal. The importance of ecological and environmental planning is recognized and given significant attention in all aspects of the mining engineering curriculum.

The main function of mining engineers is to put the knowledge of scientific theories, engineering fundamentals and developed technologies to discover and recover natural resources in a profitable manner.

Career Prospects :

Career in mining engineering is tremendous. Mining engineers are responsible for locating and safely extracting natural reserves like petroleum, minerals etc. The duties of mining professionals also include designing, planning, excavation of minerals and their transportation, maintenance of mines, air circulation and removal of toxic gases from the mines. There are some specialized branches like Mining Electronics, Mining Machinery and Mineral Mngineering that mining engineers can opt for.

Mining engineers find employment opportunities both in government as well as private sector. Companies like the ONGC, Coal India, Geological Survey of India, HCL, IPCL, Neyvelli Lignite Corp., NALCO, TISCO, TELCO, Reliance and many more MNCs.
