Although India has hundreds of engineering colleges, teaching in Mineral Engineering is virtually non-existing. As a result, there is a large vacuum of professionals in the field of Mineral Engineering in the country and therefore both mineral based industries asnd research activities suffer.
Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT), Bhubaneswar (formerly Regional Research Laboratory), a constituent laboratory of CSIR, IMMT has proved its excellence in the area of mineral processing. The facilities, created at IMMT in the area of mineral processing, are unique in the country.
After establishing itself in mineral processing research, IMMT, Bhubaneswar is now ready to generate professionals in the area of mineral engineering in order to bridge the gap between availability and demand of trained manpower by offering Post Graduate Diploma in Mineral Engineering of one year duration.
IMMTís campus-a vibrant campus situated in the capital city of Bhubaneswar- has all the facilities for students to excel not only in academics but in sports and cultural activities as well.
Our course programme, which is a CSIR PG Diploma in Mineral Engineering, is open to both sponsored (employed in industries) and non-sponsored candidates.
