HOD Message

Welcome to the Department of Mining of PRIT (Dhanbad).The department was started with an initial intake of 120 students in 3 Years Diploma course which was subsequently approved by AICTE, Govt of India,New Delhi.
Since the inception of the department, it has contributed, through its well trained and efficient products and experienced faculty members, in a very positive way in the areas of coal and non-coal mining with regard to their management, planning, research and development. The department has the unique locational advantage of being in the middle of country’s prominent coal mining companies as well as various institutions and research organizations of national and international repute such as BCCL, CCL, ECL, CMPDIL, CIMFR, IIT (ISM), TATA STEEL Ltd., SAIL, NML etc. The department is privileged to take the benefit of the presence of such big and illustrious organizations through regular interaction of industries experts with students as well as faculties.

The department has Laboratories with state-of-the-art facilities namely, viz. Rock Mechanics, Mine Ventilation, Mine Environmental Engineering, Mine Systems, Mining Machinery, Mine Surveying as well as Mine Geology. Efforts are continuously being made for improvements in each and every aspects of curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to maintain its position among the top league in the country.
