Mining and Mineral Resources Engineering

One of our primary goals as a department is to provide quality-engineering education at the undergraduate and graduate levels to meet current trained manpower needs for exploration of regional mineral resources in an environmentally acceptable manner; advance the state-of-the-art of the mining engineering discipline by engaging in basic and applied research, with emphasis on solving regional problems. We focus on providing students with the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to allow them to successfully compete for quality jobs in all areas of mining engineering.
