Mining Engineering Major


1.Introduction to disciplines and majors

Mining engineering is a secondary discipline of mining engineering. Mining engineering is the engineering and management technology about the exploitation of natural mineral resources. It plays an important role in the effective development and utilization of the natural resource base on which human society depends and survives. Social progress requires continuous improvement of mining mechanization and automation, improvement of mining engineering design and management level, emphasis on mine safety technology and environmental protection, transformation of traditional extractive industries with modern high-tech, and realization of mineral resources development and social and economic coordination and sustainability development of. The development of mining engineering discipline requires a large number of high-level engineering technology and economic management combined talents.

The mining engineering disciplines are organized on the basis of the Department of Resource Engineering and the Institute of Mining, and are related to safety technology and engineering, mineral processing engineering, geological resources and geological engineering, engineering mechanics, civil engineering, computer science and technology, management science and engineering, and environment Science is closely related to engineering, mechanical engineering, metallurgical engineering and other disciplines.
