Zone de description
Mining Engineering was initially offered in 1962 as an option in fourth year Geological Engineering. A completely separate two-year course was offered the following year and operated as a sub-department in the Department of Geological Sciences. In addition to classroom study in mineral processing, rock mechanics, mine environmental controls, mine design and mine materials handling, the course included a series of field trips to various Saskatchewan mines and required at least one summer of practical experience. In 1971 the College of Engineering agreed to create the Department of Mining Engineering. It was closed in 1976. R.F. Palmer (1972-1974) served as head of the Department.
