I. Integrated M.TECH-PH.D Programme in Engineering (2 Year M.Tech Programme in Mine Safety Engineering)

Mine safety is a major concern in the mining industry. Throughout the cycle of mining, specialized knowledge of mine safety ensures safe and sustainable recovery of mineral resources. The objectives of the programme is to educate the students in high level of theoretical knowledge starting from mine design combined with practical training enabling them to tackle various problems being faced by the mining Industries as well as to pursue further academic achievements through research and development. The structure of the programme involves lecture courses, laboratory as well as field work and dissertations. The Institute is working in almost 50 different research areas to provide scientific and technological inputs to mineral sector for optimization of mining and fuel science technologies for better safety, economy, conservation and environmental management. It has developed important norms/technologies, which are being adopted by the industry for safe and sustainable utilization of mining resources. More than 5 decades of experience in the mining and coal sector of the institute would help to achieve the goal of this programme. Students undergoing the above programmes are expected to emerge properly equipped to confront challenges in the mine safety.

Eligibility: B.E./B.Tech in Mining/ Mechanical/ Electrical/ Production/ Civil/ Instrumentation/ Electronics/ Chemical Engineering or equivalent with minimum of 7.0 CGPA (or minimum of 70% marks).
