The practice, the theory, the science, the technology and application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment comes under the discipline of Mining Engineering . Mining engineering also includes processing minerals for additional value. For modern society Mineral extraction is very crucial . Mining activities by their nature cause a disturbance of the environment in and around which the minerals are located. Mitigation of damage to the environment as a result of that production and processing should also be concern of Mining Engineering with the production and processing of mineral commodities . The department has its own building with all infrastructure facilities and modern well equipped laboratories i.e Mine computing laboratory, Rock mechanics & Dimensional Stone Lab, Environmental Lab, Geology Lab etc. Classrooms are well equipped with the modem teaching aids like, LCD, Computers and OHP etc.
