About Mining Engineering Department :

Mining Engineering discipline is the extraction of minerals from underneath, above or on the ground. Mining engineering is associated with Professional Practice such as mineral processing, exploration, excavation, geology and surveying.

The exploration of natural resources through mining activities have become increasingly important for countries like India, which depends on natural resources for their rising energy needs. For this reason, mining engineers are in huge demand in both India and abroad. Mining industry is playing a major role in contributing to the GDP of India. Mining engineers are required to have multiple skills that majorly include good problem-solving techniques.

Department of Mining Engineering in Sai Nath University was established in the year 2017 and approved by A.I.C.T.E with well-furnished classrooms and well equipped laboratories and “GAS – TESTING CHAMBER”. Our primary aim is to create Mining Engineers with technical skills in Mining works. The department emphasis on providing theoretical as well as practical knowledge to students. Here seminars, mine visits both in Coal and Metal Companies, webinars and many more academic activities are conducted on regular basis which enhances the caliber of students. Our students are well placed in Post Diploma Practical Training (P.D.P.T) in Coal and Metal Companies.

Both Male and Female Candidates are eligible for admission to this program. The course is of 3 years/6 semesters with first semester course common to all branches. Program is designed to equip students with both technical knowledge and management skills for a variety of mining operations. It also includes courses on mine management legislation and safety. It covers the details related to mining methodology, ventilation, mining machineries, surveying, mineral processing and fuel technology , underground mining (coal & metal), surface mining (coal & metal),mine and mineral economics are also included in the course curriculum.

Scope of Mining Engineering

Mining Engineers can work in national and multinational companies where they can find technologically advanced learning and experience. The salary expectations vary from institutes to job locations and also depend on the skills of the individual.

Mining Engineers are recruited for job as

  • Mine Foreman/Overman in mining industries.
  • Project Assistant CIMFR, NIRM etc .
  • Marketing and servicing engineers in explosive and machinery manufacturing companies.
  • Permit managers in Small Scale mining
  • Assistant to consultants on excavation, survey, preparation of mine plans, beneficiation, etc.
  • Mining Inspector in government departments


A growing population likely means that new technology in mining will provide energy security to the nation by environmentally and socially sustainable growth through best practices. Mining Engineers will continue to play a key role in this work.
