Mining engineering is a national key discipline, and mining engineering is a key of pillar industry for the development and exploitation of energy and minerals in China.
The mining engineering profession undertakes the theoretical research to promote the development of mining technology and make the mining engineering meet the high-quality level of safety, economy and high efficiency. Due to the leading position in the production process of the mining industry, various countries in the world have always attached great importance to this, and have invested huge manpower, material resources and financial resources. All countries in the world attach great importance to the transformation of their theoretical research and achievements into productivity. The mining engineering professionals of all countries are tireless and conscientious, using computer technology, automatic control ideas, systematic views and other advanced technologies and theories to explore boldly in mining research, greatly promoting the development of mining engineering safety, economy and efficiency. direction.
Is mining engineering a good choice for the near future?
No matter what someone says, society will always and always need mining. As someone has said before, if it cannot be cultured, it must be mined. We need too many resources and can only be obtained through mining. Demand for metals (iron, manganese, copper), non-metals (coal, gold, silver, diamonds) and aggregates (gravel, concrete, etc.) is growing in China and around the world.
Engineers and inspectors in the mining industry have made a lot of money. As all businesses are conducted in China and around the world, it can also provide more employment opportunities. There are mines throughout China, most of which are gold, copper, silver or any other metal/non-metal. Some people advocate petroleum engineering. Although petroleum engineers can make money, the oil industry is very cyclical. When oil prices remain high, the industry is in high demand and requires a lot of money. However, the issues pointed out recently. At present, oil prices are low, and the oil industry has little demand for employment. Many experienced petroleum engineers are not working now because of the lack of demand for them. But in the near future, mining is a safer option and social demand is stable.
It is recommended that you choose and practice a profession with global needs. The environment for this profession is not too good, but many precautions have been taken.
As you can imagine, the mining profession is a very good professional choice. Everyone's point of view may vary, but this is my point of view.
After graduation, students can engage in the design and technical management work, production management and teaching of various mining industrial and mining enterprises and municipal construction, transportation, railway, water conservancy and other construction projects. The graduates of this major have a large social demand and are in short supply.
