Is mining engineering the same as civil engineering?
No..Mining Engineering is far diferent from Civil Engineering. Both are fields of engineering but the area is totally different. Mining Engineering relates to thhe mines and the technology required to explore the mines, whereas Civil Engineering relates to creating engineering structures for roads, transportation, bridges, railways, marinas etc.
Civil engineering covers a broader spectrum. Civil engineering students study Structural engineering, water engineering, Geotechnical engineering (soil mechanics) and Traffic and Transport engineering. With a civil engineering degree, graduates have the opportunity to and are qualified to work in any of the above fields, or they can persue further studies in one particular area, and therefore obtain more thorough and specific qualification in that area, such as structural engineering.
Some of them are listed below, perhaps more types exist. Agricultural Engineering Architectural Engineering Bio/Biomedical Engineering Chemical Engineering Civil Engineering Computer/Software Engineering Electrical Engineering Environmental Engineering Industrial Engineering Manufacturing Engineering Mechanical Engineering Metallurgy and Materials Engineering Mineral and Mining Engineering Nuclear Engineering Ocean Engineering Transportation Engineering Electronics Engineering AeroSpace Engineering Aerodynamics Engineering
The umbrella answer is that any field of engineering which does not deal with computers or automation will have the least programming. This includes civil and structural engineering (building bridges and other infrastructure) and geotechnical and mining engineering. However, you should expect to use programs as a user in all engineering domains, i.e. Autocad, etc.
