This school comes from the Department of Safety Engineering which is established in the year of 2006. To meet the demands of talents by coal industries and industrial enterprises, the school centers on the programs for undergraduates and three-year-program students. It prepares the students with professional knowledge necessary in coal mining, mine ventilation, architectural engineering, drilling and exploration engineering, geological hazard prevention and abatement engineering.
This school has a long term cooperation with universities and enterprises. Together with Henan Polytechnic University, it brings up postgraduates specialized in safety engineering and mining engineering. The school has been carrying out most of the training work of HNIE’s safety technology training center, a second-class state mining safety training organization, undertaking the task of training authorities and administrators with safety production jobs related to mining.
The department offers study programs at 2 levels:
1. Undergraduate programs in safety engineering and mining engineering..
2. Three-year programs in coal mining technology.
There are 32 staff members in the school, including 4 professors & associate professors, 26 with master or doctorate degrees.
