The Department of Mining Engineering is a part of College of Technology and Engineering (C.T.A.E.), a constituent college of Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture & Technology, Udaipur for imparting education in Mining Engineering.

The Department of Mining Engineering was established in 1957 in Udaipur – the city of lakes, gardens, fountains and center of most of the non-coal mining activities of country to impart diploma in mining and mine surveying.

In 1996, the department was raised to degree level to cater the demand and need of the sector with an annual intake capacity of 20 students. The students with 10+2 as minimum qualification are admitted through RPET (State level admission test) and AIEEE (National level admission test). Efforts were made to include the dimensional stone technology in the curriculum that resulted in the fact that this is the only degree level college in mining engineering which imparts in dimensional stone technology as thrust area. It is the need of hour since approx 90% of the country's marble mining activities are in its vicinity only. It is needless to say that in conventional mining teaching also we have an edge, due to our locational

The department has its own new building with all infrastructure facilities and modern well equipped laboratories i.e Mine computing laboratory, Rock mechanics & Dimensional Stone Laboratory, Environmental Laboratory, Geology Laboratory etc. Classrooms are well equipped with the modem teaching aids like OHP, LCD and Computers etc.

In the institute, approximately 3000 books related to Mining Engineering in College library and 225 books in departmental library are available. In addition to this 13 national and International Journals related to Mining Engineering ae subscribed.

In a short duration, department has attained remarkable achievements in fields of teaching, research and extension. The faculty members had kept pace with the technological advancements to pass on the best of their part to the aspiring scholars. The department has approved PG courses in two disciplines, Mine planning and Mine Environment, and Doctoral program. The department also solves industry problems through research activity and scientific consultancy. Our department is situated in the heart of mining activities, so that students get practical exposures with theory part. We have a unique way to imparting field based knowledge, in which guest faculties from renowned fields like DGMS, DMG, IBM, HZL, RSMML are invited.

Vision & Mission

The Mining Engineering education is developing in the country in recent past. Over the years, there were a few but very prestigious institutions, which were engaged in imparting education in Mining Engineering.

The department of mining engineering, CTAE, MPUAT was established in 1957 for imparting diploma education. Over the years, the department have gained prestigious status vis-à-vis diploma education is concerned. The laboratories, facilities and curriculum were at par with all other institutes in the country, even some of the leading degree colleges. The students passed out, are serving in higher positions in the industry.

In light of growing demand of the industry, the department was raised to degree level, in 1996. The admission is through RPET. Subsequently first batch was passed out in year 2000. In short duration of time, this department has attained the status of significance in teaching, research and extension.
After successful running of the degree program the PG program is proposed to be started.

The key result areas (KRAS) while commencing postgraduate level of teaching will be as under:

Teaching: In view of the present trend of higher education in Mining Engineering, the courses are so designed that it will be successfully cater the need of the industry in general and newer technologies in particular.

Research: In light of the present needs and future estimates of the burning needs of the industry, capital-intensive project and research work will be taken up to develop capital- saving technologies. The major thrust areas will be Dimensional stone industry and the environmental pollution. The industries surrounding the Udaipur is facing threat of closure due to the environmental problems and subsequent high Court blanket ban on mining

  • Research project by staff members related to above thrust areas
  • Centre of excellence  related to dimensional stone technology
  • Holding of National/International seminars/symposia/workshops
  • Consultancy work to solve industry problems related above thrust areas.

SWOT analysis

  • Situated in heart of mining areas
  • Well Qualified faculty
  • Good infrastructure facility
  • Scope of research work in surrounding mining field
  • Scope of consultancy
  • Relatively new degree programme
  • New PG and Ph.D programme
  • Enhanced industry institution partnership
  • The recession may affect placement scenario and which may impact student attraction towards mining

Implementation of this vision will make Department of Mining Engineering a lead in mining education field and will play a significant role in nation building. activities in the region. In light of the burning problem, researches through funded projects, students project and other sources are proposed to be taken up in the proposed duration. Also Technologies of water resources are also proposed to be looked at.

Extension: The department of Mining Engineering is situated in the heart of non-coal mining activities of country at Udaipur. It is most suitable in catering the extension needs of the industries. Also the department is doing the consultancy work for the technical up-liftment of the industry. In light of the pollution and environmental problems in the region, it is proposed to do some joint extension and consultancy projects in the duration. This beneficial association will add to the advantage of human resource development and quick placement of our students. Promoting eco-sustainable technologies and eco-friendly substitutions for modern day environmentally unsustainable technologies will receive our focused attention.
