Feature & Definition

Mining Engineering can be defined as a profession that offers the mines in the earth's crust for the benefit of humanity. In this direction, it covers many stages from finding the mines, producing them and making the produced ores suitable for use. With its wide field of activity, mining engineering has become an interdisciplinary position. Mining engineering, which is based on basic and engineering sciences, is in the field of mining engineering, such as rock mechanics, drilling-blasting, reserve modeling, excavation, production, transportation, ventilation, topography, ore enrichment, environment, waste management.
