DEPARTMENT OF MINING ENGINEERING
Mining Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves practice, theory, science, technology and application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment. Mining engineering also includes processing minerals for value addition. The need for mineral extraction and production is an essential activity of modern industry. Mining activities by nature cause a disturbance to the environment in and around which the minerals are located.

Modern mining engineers must, therefore, be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities but also with the mitigation of damage to the environment as a result of that production and processing.

The Mining Engineering is one of the main branches of engineering situated amidst the century-old Kolar Gold Mines. Asia's largest mines, like Kudremukh Iron Ore and Neyveli Lignite, are situated at a distance less than 250 Kilometres. The Mining Engineering department has well-established labs and has an underground mine model, the only one of its kind in the State.

The department has a strong industry-institution interaction to enable exposure to the latest technological trends for students and teachers and to impart practical training at HGML, NMDC, etc.

National Institute of Rock Mechanics (NIRM) a research institute extends thefacility for the training of students in various project works. Recent additions to the laboratory include a sophisticated electronics survey station and electronic precision level. The department also has a computer laboratory for data processing.
Vision
To excel in education, training and leadership skills to prepare the students for sustainable development of mining industries.
Mission
  • To provide a conducive environment in which students think, learn, conduct, innovate and apply.
  • To impart Quality Education for meeting the needs of the Mining Engineering Profession & Society, and achieve excellence through creative Teaching- Learning and Research.
  • To inculcate the spirit of Sustainable Development and Conservation of natural resources through the advancement of technology in the exploration and production of minerals with due regard to Health, Safety and Environment.
