India being a resource rich country, the field of mining has a significance of its own. Over the years mining and other activities associated with it has helped the country in developing economically. Exports in this field forms a significant part of our total exports. All that has been possible because of the technological developments which has taken place in the field of mining machineries. Mining machineries engineering deals with the design, development and maintenance of all kinds of equipment associated with mining. The mining equipment are designed and manufactured by borrowing concepts from electrical, mechanical and mining engineering. In this field one studies about various machineries that are used for excavation, drilling, mineral processing, material handling and other earthworks.
Eligibility and course duration
Passed class XII from a recognized board with Physics, Chemistry and Math. For admissions you need to appear for entrance exams like JEE Mains.
Duration of this undergraduate course is 4 years.
More about this course
This field of study is a perfect one for those who want to specialize in the area of mining machineries. Through this course, apart from mining, you get knowledge about the electrical and mechanical engineering aspects related to mining activities and machineries that are either deployed underground or in open cast mines. The curriculum is so set that you get a complete picture of every related mining activity. Some of the machineries that are associated with mining and construction activity are conveyors, feeders, crushers, compactors, dozers and motor graders.
Among the topics that you cover in this course are mine development, mining methods, mining machineries, geo mechanics, ventilation in underground mines, underground hazards and also aspects on planning, surveying and systems engineering.
The field of mining has ample opportunities in India and abroad. Mining machineries engineers are in demand not only in mining but in many other excavation and construction activities. They are employed by a host of private and government mining corporations. There are also good opportunities in mineral processing industries, construction industries and in heavy earth equipment handling and manufacturing industries. This branch of engineering is also recognized by the Government of India as equivalent to electrical and mechanical engineering for working in mines. After completion of this course one can also seek higher learning through M.E./M.Tech courses. A few corporations where you can seek employment are Coal India, NALCO, ONGC, Nevyeli, Tata Steel, Reliance, Adani and Vedanta.
