The Department of Mining Engineering offers degrees in B.E. in Mining Engineering, M.E. in Mining Engineering and Ph.D. in Mining Engineering.

The Undergraduate Program (B. E. Mining Engineering) was started in 1981 to meet the need for qualified engineers in the field and to participate in the enormous task of exploitation of natural resources. The ultimate goal of the undergraduate studies at Mining Engineering Department is to provide graduates with the skills, academic experience, and education necessary to prepare them to excel as professionals in the highly diverse industries of mining and underground construction. The Bachelor of Engineering in Mining curriculum is continuously updated to meet the requirements of Modern Mining Industry. The subjects offered in the course includes; Computer Application to Mining Industry, Mineralogy and Petrology, Underground and Surface Mine Design, Drilling Technology, Explosive Engineering, Mineral Processing, Coal Technology, Mine Rescue & Safety, and Mine Management.

The Postgraduate Program (M. E. Mining Engineering) started in 2010 and the Doctoral Study Program (PhD Mining) started in 2003. Currently the Department of Mining Engineering is actively engaged in various research projects of national and strategic importance in the fields of Reserves Estimation, Coal Mining, Open Pit Slope Stability, Coal Gasification and Mineral Processing. The Department has developed strong Academic and Research collaborations with University of Nottingham UK, Montan University Leoben Austria, Hacettepe University Turkey and China University of Mining and Technology Xuzhou China.
