Welcome to the Department of Mining Engineering


Adarsha College of Engineering is one of the top and the best mining engineering college in India that has been approved by Directorate General of Mines Safety (DGMS). Adarsha College of Engineering offers top quality of education for both Degree and Diploma streams. DGMS is the Indian Government Regulatory agency for safety in mines and oil-fields. Not just anyone can get this approval, for this, all round development, infrastructure, quality of education and lab facilities should be of standard quality. ACE offers various other streams to both B. Tech and Diploma streams, but the mining engineering is the most advanced and prominent branch of our college.The discipline of Mining Engineering is unique to Adarsha College of Engineering among the mining engineering colleges in India. It was founded in 2009; the department offers Diploma and B.Tech/Degree programmes. Adarsha is situated in Angul district of Odisha and located within the 50 kilometers radius of MCL (Mahanadi coal fields). It is also nearer to Asia’s largest iron ore mines which located at Keonjhar, Odisha. Here you will get lots of opportunities for vocational training in nearby mines (within 30 Kilometers of radius).The Department of Mining Engineering, Adarsha College of Engineering, in fact is one of the top and the best mining engineering college in Odisha, India that has been recognized by DGMS (Directorate General of Mines Safety). Approved by AICTE, New Delhi and affiliated to BPUT, Rourkela, Orissa. The department of mining engineering at Adarsha College of Engineering is now one of the biggest in the Odisha with all facilities related to Mining Engineering. The Department is divided into six divisions with laboratories well equipped with both conventional and modern facilities. Facilities have been developed for research in collaboration with mining industry in dealing with their practical problems and also problems of fundamental nature. Below given are the major divisions of the department.

  •  Mine Machinery
  •  Mine Planning and Design 
  • Rock Mechanics and Ground Control
  •  Mineral Beneficiation and Coal Preparation
  •  Mine Environment

B. Tech & Diploma in mining engineering program emphasizes on integrative aspects of both science and engineering. As you know Mining Engineering is an engineering discipline that needs practice, theory, science, technology, and practical knowledge for the extraction and processing of ore. We provide vocational training in nearby mines to accomplish the main motive of getting better practical knowledge. Mining engineering not only includes the extraction of iron or coal but mineral extraction also comes under this category. Mineral extraction and production are quite important as per modern society and with growth of industrialization has opened a glorious gate for future for the students of this branch. Adarsha College of engineering is not only the best mining engineering college for Degree but also for Diploma discipline in Odisha. Our educational programs include areas that are quite essential for understanding the complications of Mining Engineering like Mining mechanization, Mine-surveying, role of Robotics Engineering and much more. The program also introduces the students to emerging conditions and situations related to study of mine environment, mineral quality analytics, sustainable mining-engineering, open-cast coal/ iron/ aluminum/ potash/ fluorite/ and other industrial minerals. The course for Diploma and B. Tech students’ arms them with the tactics and skills that are required have a bright future in the mining-engineering industry. The courses are designed in such a way that they provide in-depth knowledge and concepts and techno-commercial aspects so that the students walk out from college as well trained and competent engineers that are ready to enter the mining-engineering industry to take leadership. Mining Engineering is needed for mineral extraction and other fields where the earth’s crust is utilized. It deals in drilling and blasting, materials handling, rock mechanics and safety, mine ventilation, mine cost engineering, ore reserve analysis, operation analysis, mine planning and minerals processing. The construction industries with its requirements of developing roads, rail-roads, tunnels & underground chambers and hazardous waste disposal industry are examples of such applications. These are rapidly expanding needs with shortage of qualified people; the Mining Engineering is in great demand to undertake these tasks. No need to say that the job marketing of Mining Engineering is of high demand in the present time and our area is full of mines and industries to build your career.


To be recognized nationally and internationally as one of the top best institute in research in the field of Mining Engineering


To impart quality education and training to diploma and undergraduate students in Mining Engineering to prepare them for the industry and higher studies. The department actively encourages excellence in teaching, multidisciplinary research, collaborative activities and research.

The Department of Mining Engineering at ACE,Angul is one of the Top and best college in imparting Mining Engineering education in the country.


Mine First Aid Certificate is the first certificate which is to be taken by a Mining student. Nobody is eligible for mining job in India without having mine First Aid certificate.

Mine First Aid course is an introductory course suited to all personnel across all work sectors in surface mining environments. The Mine First Aid course focuses on providing the theoretical and practical skills essential to First Aid management in a mining environment. First aid is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery .It is the recommendation in the “First Aid in the workplace” Code of Practice July 2012 that a workplace First Aider should renew their First Aid certificate every three years. However CPR should be undertaken every year.

Adarsha College of Engineering (ACE) and Adarsha School of Engineering & IP (ASEIP) are conducting Mining First Aid Training with examination for the students and providing First Aid Certificates to them under St. John Ambulance. ACE is an authorized center for First Aid Training with qualified trainer, permitted  by St. John Ambulance .Interested students are required to give application to the HOD/Principal for batch wise training.


As per Mines Act 1952, persons holding Degree in Mining Engineering from any recognised University have been exempted from passing Second Class Mine Manager’s Certificate of Competency examination. Similarly persons holding Diploma or Merit Certificate in Mining have been exempted from passing Overman’s Certificate of Competency examination.

Job Prospects:-

There is a huge demand of mining engineers over a relatively small amount of skilled mining engineers. It has both national and global job market. Mining Engineers find employment opportunities both in government as well as private sector. In coal mines, after completing a Diploma in Mining Engineering you will be hired as Mining Sirdar and after getting a bachelors degree in Mining Engineering you can easily start with the rank of Undermanager. There are lots of companies like ONGC, Coal India, Geological Survey of India, HCL, IPCL, Neyvelli, Lignite Crop, NALCO, Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Reliance, Adani, Vedanta mines, etc. have their recruitment session throughout the year.

Job Profile:-

It is the job of a mining engineer to ensure the safe and efficient development of mines and other surface and underground work. They have to understand the effects of these mining structures on their surrounding environment. Before a new site is developed Mining engineers are involved at all stages of a project, they assess its viability and assist with planning the mine’s structure.
