BTech in Mining Engineering deals with the know-how of Mining and the processes related to it. The program trains students with an underlying interest in Mining to understand not only the process of how a mine works but also the skills to manage one. Mining is one of the prominent industries contributing to the economy of any country. Without the help of raw materials, it is impossible to run a consumer-based economy like the one in many capitalist countries, including India. Therefore, Mining is an industry that guarantees a long-term career and a stable one.
A BTech in Mining enables students to understand the working of different types of mines. With the likes of Underground & Opencast Coal Mines, Non-Coal Mines, Cement Mines, Metal Mines, etc., all having very other functions and processes, a BTech is a must to kickstart your career in Mining.
In the first year of the BTech in Mining program, students learn the basics of Engineering and their knowledge of Mathematics and Physics is brushed up. Following that, the introduction to our concerned subject is also carried out subsequently so that the students get a feel of it. At GHRU, we believe that a strong foundation is essential for mastering the art. That’s why in the second half of the first year, students are taught vital professional skills and important Planning and Designing techniques which acts as an excellent introduction to Mining.
Subsequently, in the second and third years, students learn the methods of working in Coal and Non-Coal Mines with Advance Mining Surveying, Mine Economics, Mine Management, Mine Machinery, Rock Mechanics and Mine Legislation & Safety. Along with this, students also have to carry out their research regarding completing a major practical project. These factors contribute a significant chunk to the development of students for the final year. In the fourth year, students are developed into professionals capable of managing the allotted tasks at a Mine with utmost managerial skills. The students get their final set of education on Mining for the program and go out for a six-month-long internship. These internships help students get a real-world experience of Mines and put their practical knowledge and skills to the test.
