The diploma holders in mining engineering will be responsible to supervise the shaft sinking operations, drift drivage operation & support erection operation in underground mines. Students should be able to select the suitable ground, drilling pattern, explosives & shot firing with its tools in shaft sinking operation & drift drivage for developing access to underground mines &/or connecting two individual/separate mine parts. This subject provides students basic knowledge of shaft sinking, drift drivage & support erection operations, its associated problems & remedies which will make him able to supervise respective operations.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes

i. Explain safe drivage of mine accesses including shaft and inclines.
ii. Draw a support plan for the workplace in the underground mine.
