Rationale
The degree holders in mining engineering will be responsible to keep underground mines in comfortable working conditions & safe by ensuring brisk ventilation. They should be able to select the suitable fans & drive as well as select proper airways to ventilate whole mine &/or it’s various parts, economically.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
i. Assess quality of air in mine atmosphere.
ii. Comprehend principles of ventilation to improve quality of atmosphere in underground mines.
iii. Comprehend various types of Mine fans and their installation to maintain and improve ventilation in underground mine.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
