Mining Engineering

About the Department


Mining Engineering as an engineering discipline involves the practice, the theory, the science, the technology, and the application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment. Mining Engineers provide fundamental inputs to the development of society in the form of raw materials required for energy production, steel making, manufacturing of cement and other vital ingredients like copper, aluminum, etc. The job of a Mining Engineer is very diverse and challenging.

Mining Engineering graduates from IIEST, Shibpur are trained to be amongst the best in the world and are in great demand in the industry.

  • The Department is nominated by the Government of India as one of the Govt. Agencies (out of five) for verification of Mine Closure Activity.
  • Coal Analysis Laboratory of the department was selected by Coal India Limited, CIMFR, NTPC Ltd. for analysis of referee samples challenged by Coal Companies / Power Utilities sampled by CIMFR under Third Party Sampling.
  • It is the first DST FIST sponsored department. 

 

Vision & Mission


Vision

To be recognized nationally and internationally as one of the leading institutes in research and providers of quality engineers in the field of Mining Engineering

Mission

To impart quality education and training to undergraduate, postgraduate and dual degree B.Tech - M.Tech students in Mining Engineering to prepare them for the industry and higher studies. The department actively encourages excellence in teaching, multidisciplinary research, collaborative activities and positive contributions to society.
The Department of Mining Engineering at IIEST, Shibpur was the pioneer in imparting Mining Engineering education in the country. Mining education started in India, in 1906, at this institute (the then Bengal Engineering College). Meanwhile, it was felt, - amongst others by the Indian National Congress -, that a School of Mines is established in India in the model of the Royal School of Mines, London. The desire was transformed into reality with the establishment of the Indian School of Mines (ISM) in 1926 at Dhanbad and B E College stopped imparting mining education. As such the department was closed and all its scientific and human resources were transferred to ISM Dhanbad. However, the post-independence period witnessed a purposeful thrust on the mining sector. A consequential fall out was the re-establishment of the Department of Mining and Geology at Bengal Engineering College Shibpur in 1956. Ever since its re-establishment, the Mining Engineering department has been catering to the quality-manpower needs of the mining industry. Today, it stands as one of the most diverse and vibrant departments encompassing all disciplines within Mining Engineering and associates areas. Our students are trained in sound fundamental theories in engineering backed by state-of-the-art laboratory and computational facilities. The department has regular intense interactions with the industries, which help the students to get abreast of the latest developments.
We have one of the most diverse blends of faculty members available anywhere in the country. In addition to their excellent skills in teaching, they have excelled in diverse multidisciplinary research areas. These include Geomechanics, Coal bed methane, and shale gas extraction, Carbon sequestration, Safety & Ergonomics, Remote Sensing, and Geographical Information System, Mineral Beneficiation, slime Waste Management. The Faculty members have secured research grants worth a few crores over the last few years from agencies like the Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Coal, Department of Space, Ministry of Environment and Forests, University Grants Commission, and British Petroleum, etc.
Also, several industrial consultancy projects have been taken up. The Department is also actively involved in arranging seminars and short-term courses for the dissemination of knowledge in various fields.
 Lastly, the students are our strength. The high quality of our students is amply manifested by their excellent performance in the Industries. They are in high demand for employment in various top mining companies in India. They also maintain a very dynamic environment in the department and regularly undertake many challenging activities. They have earned numerous laurels while participating in different technical festivals across the country.
