Course Overview

B. Tech in mining engineering programme emphasizes on integrative aspects of both science and engineering. Mining Engineering is an engineering discipline that needs practice, theory, science, technology, and practical knowledge for the extraction and processing of ore. Mining engineering not only includes the extraction of iron or coal but mineral extraction also comes under this category. Mineral extraction and production are quite important as per modern society and with growth of industrialization has opened a glorious gate for future for the students of this branch. Mining Engineering is needed for mineral extraction and other fields where the earth's crust is utilized. It deals in drilling and blasting, materials handling, rock mechanics and safety, mine ventilation, mine cost engineering, ore reserve analysis, operation analysis, mine planning and minerals processing. The construction industries with its requirements of developing roads, rail-roads, tunnels & underground chambers and hazardous waste disposal industry are examples of such applications. RIMT’s educational programmes include areas that are quite essential for understanding the complications of Mining Engineering like Mining mechanization, Mine-surveying, role of Robotics Engineering and much more. The programme also introduces the students to emerging conditions and situations related to study of mine environment, mineral quality analytics, sustainable mining-engineering, open-cast coal/ iron/ aluminum/ potash/ fluorite/ and other industrial minerals.

The four year programmes is spread across eight semesters.

There is a huge demand of mining engineers over a relatively small amount of skilled mining engineers. Students have access to both national and global job markets. Mining Engineers find employment opportunities both in government as well as private sector. After completion, students get to start with the rank of Undermanager. Corporates like ONGC, Coal India, Geological Survey of India, HCL, IPCL, Neyvelli, Lignite Crop, NALCO, Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Reliance, Adani, Vedanta mines, etc. have their recruitment session throughout the year.
