What is Mining Engineering?

Mining Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the science, technology and application of extracting and processing minerals from natural environment. The mining engineering includes the 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.

Few lines about B.Tech/BE Mining Engineering

The B.Tech/BE Mining Engineering is an undergraduate course that is divided into 8-semesters. The course aims to boost the knowledge and polishing the skills of students that are applicable in the mining industry. The course encompasses core courses elective and practical sessions related to mining industry.

The course structure is allocated according to the current trends in the mining industry and their requirements. The course trains the students on various aspects of mining like surveying, exploration, planning, cost estimation, extraction and processing of minerals, metals and other natural resources from the earth.

Eligibility

The students who have passed PUC or 10+2 with science background can join to B.Tech/BE courses.The students interested in joining B.Tech/BE courses are required to qualify competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges.

Admission Procedures

The students with relevant qualifications can join to B.Tech/BE courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is direct admission.

Let’s discuss in detail

Merit Admission

The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE Mining Engineering degree should mandatorily appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The engineering college allots the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in PUC or 10+2.

There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students

1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling

The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA).

The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE programmes in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).

2. COMED-K Counselling

The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for engineering programmes.

Direct Admission 

The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE Mining Engineering course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.

  • Reliance Extractions
  • Hatti Gold Mines
  • SAIL India

Placement Opportunities

Some of the job roles available are:

Mine Managers: The mine managers are responsible for planning, organizing and supervising the activities of a mine. They are responsible for planning future mine production, overseeing the development and tunnelling of the mine and inspecting the mine for danger. Mine managers also carry out generic management duties, such as hiring staff and coordinating and negotiating with suppliers, contractors and other stakeholders.

Mine Operations Manager: The operations managers oversee project engineering activities during the construction phase of the mine. They are responsible for facility planning, process engineering, maintenance and application of automation and advanced technology and engineering work relating to project development.

Mine Planners: The mine planners examine mining methods and equipment to improve performance, prepare drilling and blasting strategies, develop production strategies & assist with estimating mine plan costs and economic evaluations.

Mine Ventilation Engineers: The mine ventilation engineer ensures a steady supply of fresh & clean air for miners to work in. This means controlling heat and humidity levels that quickly can become overwhelming inside mines and removing noxious gases that may come from the Earth itself as well as the carbon dioxide generated by miners.
