MINING ENGINEERING

OVERVIEW

In whole of M.P., AKS University is the first to start B.Tech. Mining Engineering and M.Tech. Mining Engineering program. The Mining engineers passing Diploma and B. Tech. are finding jobs in various mines in statutory capacities. They also get absorbed in non-statutory jobs in mines and allied segments. With a much updated course structure, we are geared up to extend state-of-the-art teaching together with frequent visits of our students to Coal, Metal and other mines

VISION

In the areas of student-faculty-and industry/mines interaction, in all these years several visits by our students to industries and mines. Visits were undertaken to various industries located in and around Satna-Katni region. Besides, our B.Tech. in Mining Engineering students have visited International seminar at Malaysia and Mining Machinery Exhibition and Conference held at Kolkata This group also visited Underground mines of Uranium Corporation of India Ltd. in Jharkhand. Our students have visited the only underground Gold Mine of the country at Hutti in Karnataka and one of the most modern limestone mines of Aditya Birla Group – Rajashree Cement Limestone Mine in Gulbarga District of Karnataka.

MISSION

Directorate General of Mines Safety (DGMS) had accorded approval to AKS University to conduct Gas Handling examinations and Gas Testing Examinations. In underground Coal Mines, mine gases are a source of accident and have detrimental effect on the health of miners and all officials. Every Diploma and Degree level students, need to pass ‘Gas Testing Examination being conducted by DGMS).
