Mining Engineering Department

1. General Information

Eskişehir is one of the most popular places of Turkey in terms of mining and has important metallic and industrial reserves of boron salts, chromite, magnesite, gold, marble and meerschaum. On the purpose of supporting mining industry, Mining Engineering Department was established in 1975 in Eskişehir. The department has three divisions, namely, Mining, Mineral Processing and Excavation Machines and Mechanization. The courses have been designed to train mining engineers who operates underground resources consciously and efficiently. Undergraduate courses are given theorically and supplemented with practice. Basic Mineral Engineering courses are given in the first two years of study, and elective courses can be selected and to be professionalized in any of the divisions. The department has high technology mineral processing, rock mechanics, mineralogy, ore bed and semi precious gem stones laboratories. Graduates are employed in either government or private mining and/or mineral processing companies in Turkish Mining Industry.
