The Mining Engineering Study Programme focuses on learning aspects related to mining minerals, coal, rocks, metals, and non-metals. This program aims to prepare students to conduct the mining process properly and efficiently. Students will learn about the types of minerals to be mined, exploration methods, the nature of the minerals to be mined, and how to process them so that humans can utilize them.
The field of study in the Mining Engineering Study Programme includes understanding the mining process of minerals, coal, rocks, metals, and non-metals. However, in addition to the previously mentioned factors, it is essential to evaluate the economic factors in the mining process in the context of gold mining. The nature of the mineral, its usefulness, how it is mined, and the processing methods for human use must be considered in terms of economics.
Therefore, in this program, students will also learn economic concepts related to mineral mining. The mining process has three main stages: exploration, exploitation, and processing. Exploration is the stage of searching for valuable minerals; exploitation is the stage of mining those minerals. At the same time, processing involves separating valuable minerals from other particles mixed with the minerals.
In addition, students will also learn about the exploitation of precious minerals. Precious minerals refer to gold, silver, platinum, and others. This explains why the Mining Engineering study program focuses more on mining precious minerals. However, it should be noted that the field of Petroleum Engineering specializes in studying petroleum and natural gas. The process of mining precious minerals has different characteristics from petroleum mining, thus requiring a different approach.
The Mining Engineering study program aims to assist students in developing their understanding and skills in mining by providing adequate facilities and a variety of learning methods. Mining Engineering students can apply the knowledge and skills they learn through Practical Work and/or Final Projects. Both Practical Work and Final Project can be conducted at mining sites so that students can experience first-hand the situation in the field. In the final stage of study, students will be involved in a project in the form of a capstone design.
The Mining Engineering study program aims to teach students how to extract valuable minerals economically. This includes an understanding of exploration techniques, mining methods, and mineral processing to maximize the economic value of the mining.
