Workshop/ Training/ Conference

    The Department of Mining Engineering has actively involved in organising workshops and symposiums jointly with the support of Tamil Nadu Mines Safety Association (TNMSA) and Mining Engineers’ Association of India -Tamil Nadu Chapter (MEAI-TN Chapter) for the benefits of stakeholders from industry – both mining and civil construction. The tailor-made programs are prepared to cater the specific demands of the industry and some of them are exclusively organised for executives of the industry. The training programs are also organised at the location of the industry for the convenience of the officials and workmen and the areas covered in the Training:

  • Optimisation of blast design parameters for surface.
  • Controlled Blasting for Surface Mines and Urban Environment
  • Control of Environment Effects due to Blasting in Quarries
  • Monitoring & control of fly-rock, ground vibration, air overpressure and rockmass damage
  • Advanced Rock Blasting Techniques for Mining and Civil Engineers
  • Mine Management and Safety
  • Slope Stability in Surface Mines
  • Mine Planning for Better Utilisation of Ore and Higher Productivity in Surface Mines
  • Basic Rock Mechanics for Mining and Civil Engineers
  • Advanced Rock Mechanics for Mining and Civil Engineers


    Short courses are usually held on concurrent topics to suit the budding requirement of the industry. it is often held at site for client-specific requirement. Courses held at Anna University campus are open to participants from various industries on nominal fee basis. Some of the Short term courses of duration one/two weeks conducted by the department are given below.

  • Hydraulics in Mining Equipment
  • Trackless mining equipment
  • Condition Monitoring of Mining Equipment
  • Failure Analysis of Equipment Components
  • Crushers & Crushing – An Update
  • Machine Vibration & Diagnostic Maintenance
  • Drills & Drilling – An Update,
  • Advances in Mine Workshop Practices
  • Opencast mining machinery for the Executives
  • Reliability analysis of mining equipment
  • Quarrying & Crushing Technology

With the support of National institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT), the Department of Mining Engineering has installed the state-of-the-art facilities for

  • Design of rock excavations in Deep Sea Mining Technology
  • Simulated Laboratory for Soil-Machine Interaction Studies in Ocean Mining

    The mandate of our Department is to provide enabling technology to mining, civil and construction sectors to optimise their resources.
