Who We Are

Our Vision

Upholding the esteem of being the antecedent, the Department of Mining Engineering, IIT Kharagpur has always believed in the flow of practical knowledge with innovation as inspiration, which has rejuvenated the ancestral engineering ideals into the modern facts. With this vision as the developments in the Mining and Geology industries, the Department of Mining engineering initiated GREATSTEP in 2008 to create a common platform for young talents. The last ten editions were filled with mind churning challenges, informative guest lectures and workshops aimed at the expansion of thoughts into the unexplored realms of the field. GREATSTEP 2018 is all set with new and exalted levels of enthusiasm to march ahead as the flag bearer to its legacy in all aspects. As a continuation of past years this year also we are bringing the new edition of GREAT-STEP from 2nd to 4th November 2018.
