Department of Mining Engineering

Brief History of the Department

Department of Mining Engineering has started its journey under School of Mines & Metallurgy in Kazi Nazrul University in the year 2017. The department started offering 6 semesters diploma in Mining Engineering from the year 2017 and 8 semester B.Tech in Mining Engineering from the year 2019. Both the courses are approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Government of India. The students are admitted through WBJEE for degree programme and through JEXPO for diploma programme.
Being situated at Asansol in Raniganj Coalfield, one of the oldest coal mining areas in the whole country, the department has the advantage of proximity to the country’s prominent coal mining companies like ECL, BCCL, CCL (subsidiaries of Coal India Limited), Tata Steel, SAIL etc. as well as various nationally and internationally acclaimed mining academic and research institutions like IIT(ISM)-Dhanbad, CIMFR, CMPDIL etc.


Vision of the Department

To impart technical knowledge and skill for exploration, exploitation and beneficiation of coal and minerals with due consideration of safety, conservation and environment for a sustainable industrial development; along with generation of information to fill the knowledge gap for efficient mining of natural resources and utilization of underground space; paying best respect to the mother nature.


Mission of the Department:

To produce top class mining engineers through extensive and relevant theoretical/practical learning exposures.

  • To inculcate an ethical professional character in students for promoting and practicing mining engineering in social interests.
  • To expose the complete spectrum of technical challenges of mining world before the students and guide them for accepting the mining challenges.
  • To provide state of the art knowledge and training for excelling in globally competitive mining and mineral sectors.
  • To improve analytical ability of the young brains for contribution in the futuristic areas of mining through research and development (R&D).
  • To build up institute-industry relationship by innovation, incubation and making entrepreneurship.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The students are expected to obtain the following programme educational objectives after the completion of the course:

  • Apply knowledge of mining engineering to extract coal/minerals keeping in view the safety, conservation and economical aspects.
  • Work effectively with other engineering and science teams as a team member or leader in multidisciplinary projects.

Program Specific Objectives (PSOs)

At the end of the degree program, the student will be:

  • Able to work in a managerial capacity in a mine to look after the overall safety, conservation and economical aspects.
  • Able to work as a planning engineer to carry out the short term and long term planning to operate a mine.
  • Able to work as a blasting engineer in underground tunneling and hydel power project.
  • Able to work as a surveyor in mining and civil projects.

At the end of the diploma program, the student will be:

  • Able to work in a supervisory capacity in a mine to look after the day to day safety aspects.
  • Able to work as a planning engineer to carry out the short term planning to operate a mine.
  • Able to work as a blasting engineer in underground tunneling and hydel power project.
  • Able to work as a surveyor in mining and civil projects.
