Diploma in Mining Engineering.Diploma in Mining Engineering is a Diploma level Mining Engineering course. Mining Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves the science, technology and application of extracting and processing minerals from a natural environment.
Diploma in Mining Engineering is a three year long diploma programme after standard 10. Mining engineering is essentially as the name suggests, the engineering, that is the science technology and application of mining that is the extraction of minerals. The eligibility for pursuing this degree is having passed your 10th standard board exams from CBSE, ICSE, state boards, or other equivalent certified boards for 10th level education. This course allows students to gain specialised knowledge in the field of mining which would be beneficial to those who are interested in pursuing an engineering related profession in the field. It is a 3 year course, consisting of 6 semesters. The course may also be pursued after completion of standard 12. Admission into this course is merit based and depends on marks scored in 10th standard or 12th standard board examinations as the case may be. If the student is opting for this course after 12th, he or she needs to have had physics, chemistry and mathematics as subjects at the class 12 level.
The course includes subjects ranging from English, mathematics, electronics, and mining, to assisting subjects like applied sciences, graphics, etcetera which would help the candidate be successful in this field. The course is best suited for those that are capable of thinking critically and are good at analysing situations and are capable of working in teams or leading them. This degree also makes a candidate eligible for pursuing further degrees in engineering, which might be the intention especially if a student is pursuing this course after having completed their 10th grade. It is also a good base builder for candidates that wish to pursue scientific research in this field later on in their career.
