The School of Energy and Resource was evolved from the Department of Mining
& Metallurgy (later named Department of Mining) of National
Northwest Industrial Institute, which was a combination
of Jiaozuo Industrial College, Beiyang University, Beiping
University and Northeast University. It became a department
of Xi'an Jiaotong University in 1957, and one year later
(September 15, 1958), Xi'an University of Science and Technology
(the former Xi'an Mining Institue) was separated from Xi'an
Jiaotong University. At that time, including Xi'an Mining
Institute, there was only one mining college with the length
of schooling of 5 years in the western region and two all
over the country. The Department of Mining was the most
important department in the institute when it was established.
The School of Energy and Resource has taken an important status in the field of higher education and scientific research of Mining and Safety in our country. Professor Hou yunguang is the founder of the department of mining engineering. With professor Hou and other teachers' hard work, the School of Energy and Resource has achieved rational specialty structure, excellent teachers and advanced experimental installations.
At present, the School has one national
key academic discipline, two key academic disciplines of
Shaanxi Province, one key laboratory of Ministry of Education
and two key laboratories of Shaanxi Province, The School
offers doctoral and master's degrees in Mining Engineering,
Safety Technique & Engineering. It is also composed
of three undergraduate specialties. There are 12 professors,
10 doctoral supervisors, 9 pluralistic doctoral supervisors
and 13 associate professors and senior engineers. 11 teachers
have doctoral degree, 38 teachers have master's degree.
Current enrollment in the School includes
77 doctor graduate students, 147 master graduate students,
80 engineering postgraduate students and 857 undergraduate
