The postgraduate program in Mining Engineering started in 1976. M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mining Engineering are currently being offered by the Department. Since September 2017, the Department has been offering a new M.Sc. degree program in “Tunneling and Underground Excavation Engineering”.

The M.Sc. courses are aimed at bringing the students abreast with the most recent developments in their fields of specialization. The Master’s degrees are offered on both full-time and part-time basis. The Ph.D. program is, however, offered as full-time studies.
