The programme comprises of taught courses, seminars, fieldtrips, report writing and laboratory work. Assessments of course work are primarily done through quizzes, class assignments, seminars and end of semester examinations. Graduates from the Department are equipped with the skill to identify, model and mining engineering problems.

The mining engineering is resourced with highly efficient personnel and committed academic staff with specialties in the fields of mining. Academic staffs are also committed to research and extension services in their various fields of specialty.

The department has linkages with related industries as well as sister universities home and abroad, this allows for a sharing of knowledge and research to meet the dynamics of the safety world in modern times.
