The Department of Mining Engineering, BIT Sindri was started in the year 1975 by the
Government of Bihar, keeping in view the vast and a large variety of mineral reserves in the
state of Bihar (now Jharkhand). There was also an urgency to cater the need for a large
number of trained and skilled mining engineers in the 1970s as natural consequences of
nationalization of the mineral industries. The department was started with an initial intake
of 25 students in four years degree course which was subsequently approved off late
enhancing to 49 students per year by AICTE, New Delhi.
Since the inception of the department, it has contributed, through its well trained and
efficient products and experienced faculty members, in a very positive way in the areas of
coal and non-coal mining with regard to their management, planning, research and
development. The department has the unique locational advantage of being in the middle of
country’s prominent coal mining companies as well as various institutions and research
organizations of national and international repute such as BCCL, CCL, ECL, CMPDIL,
CIMFR, IIT (ISM), TATA STEEL Ltd., SAIL, NML etc. The department is privileged to
take the benefit of the presence of such big and illustrious organizations through regular
interaction of industries experts with students as well as faculties.
The Department of Mining Engineering in its last 44 years of existence has developed its
own curriculum and significant laboratory facilities in keeping with the present-day
requirements in the mining and allied industries of the nation and also on a global context.
The department has Laboratories with state-of-the-art facilities namely, viz. Rock
Mechanics, Mine Ventilation, Mine Environmental Engineering, Mine Systems, Mining
Machinery, Mine Surveying as well as Mine Geology. Efforts are continuously being made
for improvements in each and every aspects of curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular
activities to maintain its position among the top league in the country.
