In Mining Engineering (also known as mineral engineering), you will learn about the technologies and techniques used for the identification and extraction of minerals from the Earth. Are you interested to learn more about this field? Do you know how minerals like coal, petroleum, metallic minerals, and non-metallic minerals can be extracted? These all techniques will be taught in the study of mining engineering.
Mining engineering deals with discovering, extracting, processing, marketing, and utilizing mineral deposits from the earth’s crust. The role of the mining engineer may be quite diversified, and the field offers opportunities for specialization in a large number of technical areas. The trained professional in this field is well versed in mining and geology and also in the principles of civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering as applied to the mining industry. With the present trend toward the use of engineers in industrial management and administrative positions, the mining engineer’s training also includes economics, business, personnel management, and the humanities.
