Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering
Professor Koehler S. Stout
Until recent years, mining has depended upon the muscles of men to supply the power required to obtain ore. With the rising cost of labor and the increased demand for metals, mine management has turned to machines to meet these demands. With the coming of the machines, the mechanization of mining began, and a new era in mining developed. Great strides have been made in drilling, hoisting, haulage, etc; but the sinking of shafts still create a costly operation.
