The research interests of the Department of Mining Engineering cut across all available specializations. Although these research interests are many and diverse, all are directed towards development of new technologies and improvement of existing ones in the fields of mining and minerals engineering. They are focused on the development of innovative techniques for exploration, exploitation and processing of mineral resources for national industrial development and sustenance. The department currently undertakes new research in evaluation, simulation, drilling and management of some of the existing mines in Nigeria.
