MNG T 030 Introduction to Mining Technology (2)

“ Introduction to Mining Technology” is a second semester course to introduce students to the subject of mining engineering so they understand the bituminous coal mining industry and the challenges that it faces – economic, environmental, political, societal, ethical, as well as technological. Emphasis is placed on encouraging students to learn mining engineering by observing and doing: conducting case studies, solving problems, and designing basic mining systems. Principles of beneficiation and processing will be injected at a continuous pace, as with the disciplines of mining engineering: rock mechanics, ventilation, production, auxiliary operations planning, and management. This technical foundation will serve as a prerequisite for MNGT 203, MNGT 209 and MNGT 205.
