Undergraduate Course Information


Norway

The Department of Mining Engineering was established in 1954 as part of the then Maclagan Engineering College and has the distinction of being the first in the country to offer a formal degree course in Mining Engineering. Since its inception, the Department of Mining Engineering has produced highly skilled engineers who have contributed towards the economy of the country. The Department of Mining Engineering has an enrollment of about 40 students per year, pursuing undergraduate studies in Mining Engineering. The department is continuing its postgraduate program since 1976 and offers courses for the degrees leading to M.Sc. and PhD in Mining Engineering. The department has initiated a new M.Sc. program titled “Tunneling and Underground Space Construction Engineering”. The program has been approved by the university bodies and is currently under review by HEC. Current enrollment for M.Sc. Mining Engineering program is about 20.
