RGPV CBGS 3rd Sem Mining Engg Syllabus | Mining Engineering Syllabus RGPV B.Tech.

RGPV CBGS 3rd Sem Mining Engg Syllabus | Mining Engineering Syllabus RGPV Credit Based Grading System B.Tech.

The Rajiv Gandhi Prodhoyogiki Vishavdhyalaya i.e RGPV now disclose the new scheme for 2nd year students who are admitted into the RGPV University as well as their affiliated institutes. The new scheme name is Credit Based Grading System (CBGS); under these scheme the university will give BTech degree to all 2nd year admitted students. It is very good news for all students and as we also known as the RGPV is one the largest government technical university of MP. More than 1 lacks candidates get Graduation as well as master degree from that university.
                   In this article we are going to share RGPV CBGS 3rd Sem Mining Engineering Syllabus for 2nd year students. In the RGPV CBGS 3rd sem there are 7-8 subjects in Mining Engineering branch i.e. Energy, Environment, Ecology & Society, Mining Environment-I, Mining Surveying – I, Rock Mechanics, Geology- I, Computer  programming-I (Java Technology), Rural Outreach (Internal Assessment), and NSS/NCC/Social Work (Internal Assessment).
