About Course

Mineral engineers are inevitably the show stealers. Starting from soap and toothpaste to construction of phones, computers, glass, planes, trains, automobiles to making cooking utensils, they are needed in all these industries. From identification of mines and quarries to supervision and management of extraction operations and designing of ore and mineral processing plants, a well trained mineral engineer does it all.

Mineral Engineering courses are a blend of mathematics, physics, and chemistry apart from geology and various environmental sciences. On successful completion of the course, a student learns the trade of processing and extraction of minerals in an environment-friendly manner.

Some of the subjects taught as a part of the curriculum in most popular institutes include: Earth System Science, Global Energy Scenario & Energy Security of India, Engineering Mechanics, Mineralogy, Petrology & Stratigraphy, Particle Technology, Material Handling Systems, Coal Preparation, Fuel Technology, Elements of Material Engineering, Process Equipment Selection and lots more.
