IIT Kharagpur Begins Course on Safe Mining

To provide a safer environment and hazard-free workplace to Mineworkers, IIT Kharagpur launches an M.Tech course in Mining to identify and counter safety issues in Mining. The course will begin in July 2019.

A new full-time M.Tech program on ‘Safety, Health and Environment’ is going to be launched at IIT Kharagpur by its associate department of Mining Engineering. The course will deal with new safety technologies and hazard management in the mining industry.

Prof. Debasis Deb who is the HOD of the Mining department expressed his concern that in India it is thought that safety is someone else's concern whereas safety in mines is the need of the hour currently in India. He said the course will help develop safer mining practices in the near future.

CMD of National Minerals Development Corporation (NMDC), Bijendra Kumar said the new course will help ensure new technology for the industry to thrive. With the intake capacity of 11, the course will start in July 2019.
