History of the Department

The National Miner Resources University was the first University in Russia which started environmental training of the engineering staff of all specialties in 1978. In the same year the Department of Engineering Ecology was established. It  became the prototype of the Department of Geoecology.
During the years of its existence, the Department has undergone some changes and reorganizations in compliance with the goals, and made a significant contribution to the development of training and retraining of engineers-ecologists. Simultaneously with the Department of Geoecology, the Faculty of Retraining of Engi-neering Staff in the field of “Ecology and efficient use of natural resources in exploration, extraction and pro-cessing” was created.
In 1991 the University started training of the engineering staff of the specialty “Thermoplastic, automa-tion and ecology of industrial furnaces” for the needs of the metallurgical industry. In this regard, the Depart-ment of Environmental Engineering was transformed into the section of the Department of Engineering Ecolo-gy and Metallurgy of Heavy Metals.
In 1995 the University started preparation of engineers on a new specialty 280202 “Engineering Envi-ronment Protection” for the mining-metallurgical industry, and the Department was again converted by merge with the Department of Mine Ventilation and Labor Safety in the Department of Ecology, Aerology and Labor Safety.
By 2004 considerable experience in the training of engineers-ecologists was accumulated. Scientific base and qualified personnel structure were created and the scope of the environmental training was expanded. In this connection the Department of Geoecology was allocated as independent.
