Mining

Mining engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the practice, the theory, the science, the technology, and application of extracting and processing minerals from a naturally occurring environment.
 
 
 
Mining engineering is a division of engineering which studies the techniques for extracting minerals from natural environment that involves the energy sources, non-metallic and metallic ores and solid fuels. The mining technique involves blasting, production, processing, drilling, marketing, extraction and development. Apart from these techniques the main task of mining engineers is to check that the project on which they are working is environmentally safe and not destroying the natural environment. Mining engineers must have the knowledge about the underground and opencast coal or ore mining. This field of work has a lot of job prospects as India is the land of natural resources.
