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 also includes processing minerals for additional value.
Mineral extraction is essential to modern society. Mining activities by their nature cause a disturbance of the environment in and around which the minerals are located. Mining engineers must therefore be concerned not only with the production and processing of mineral commodities, but also with the mitigation of damage to the environment as a result of that production and processing.
Mining engineers have a number of careers to choose from. Based on the role they assume, these Professionals are responsible for activities like planning, designing and construction of mines, managing and controlling mining operations,
ensuring safety, ventilation and cooling in the mines, segregation and transportation of minerals, designing engineering structures and dealing with environmental aspects of mining.
Some of the roles mining engineers can assume are mine designer, mine planner, mine manager, health and safety manger,mine ventilation engineer, consulting engineers, sales engineers operations manager, mining investment analyst, production manager and petroleum engineer. Jobs are available in both government and private sector. Mining engineers usually work in
collaboration with geologists and civil, mechanical, metallurgical and industrial engineers. Apart from mining industry, they can work in fields like construction, waste management and environmental conservation.
