Mining Engineering is a profession that deals with the application of mathematics, natural and applied sciences, humanities and social sciences in mineral deposit assessment; mine feasibility study; mine design, development and construction; management of mining operations, mining and mineral economics, environmental protection and safety, and associated activities and processes; and mine progressive rehabilitation, closure, and decommissioning to harness mineral resources safely and economically for the social and economic benefits of the country.
The department aims to play a greater role in the revival of the mining industry as one of the pillars of social and economic development of the country with due recognition to human rights and environmental preservation, thus creating harmonious relationship among citizen to enjoy an equal opportunity to God’s given resources.
The Department of Mining Engineering aims to produce competent and socially responsible professionals geared towards proper extraction and exploitation of economic mineral deposits in sustainable manner. It is committed to society to produce quality, environmentally-friendly and dedicated mining engineers with a high sense of professionalism and courage to accept challenges in life. We aim to develop Mining Engineers in the future in the environment that can do ordinary things extraordinarily that are within the bounds of stakeholders, government, non-government organization & concerns to fosters excellence through practice, academe and entrepreneurship.
