Mining Engineering Department, one of the scientific departments of the College of Petroleum and Mining Engineering. It’s a precise scientific specialization in the field of Mining engineering discipline is the extraction of minerals and deal with it. Mining engineering is associated with many other disciplines, such as mineral processing, exploration, excavation, geology, and metallurgy, geotechnical engineering and surveying.

Graduates of this department, work in the following basic extractive and transformative industries:

The mining industry

The petroleum production industry

The mineral industries

These industries all need a special kind of workers to cope with the unusual work conditions, and this is what the mining department graduate learns to confront.

Our vision is for the Mining Engineering to be a vital department that adopts a distinguished academic and research program that achieves educational distinction at the national and international levels.

Our mission is to graduate mining engineers with excellent education.
