The Mine Planning and Valuation Laboratory is one of the supporting facilities for teaching and learning activities in the FTTM-ITB Mining Engineering Study Program and the FTTM-ITB Mining Engineering Study Program. Currently, this laboratory is under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Ir. Budi Sulistianto, MT. as laboratory manager. This laboratory has an area of approximately 62 m2 which is divided into 2 designations. The first designation is as a means of student discussion with an area of about 14 m2, while the second designation is as a practicum facility with an area of about 48 m2.
As explained in the previous section, the Mine Planning and Valuation Laboratory is used for teaching and learning activities and research in the field of geotechnical, mine planning and valuation which includes:
- Geotechnical analysis
- Mine investment analysis
- Estimating the need for mining equipment
- Mine planning
- Mine valuation
This discussion facility is generally used by undergraduate students at level 4 (semester 7 and above) with the topic of Geotechnical research, Mine Planning and Mining Valuation as well as students of the Masters program in the special field of Geomechanics to discuss, carry out assignments, and complete their research (both Final Assignment and Thesis). In addition, this facility can also be used for lecture activities with up to 10 lecture participants.
This practicum facility is used for practicum activities in several subjects, both undergraduate and master program courses. Practicums conducted for undergraduate programs include the following:
- TA3104 Mine Investment Analysis
- TA3202 Mine Geotechnical Engineering
- TA4101 Mine Planning
- TA5105 Mechanics of Continuous Media
- TA5106 Advanced Rock Mechanics I
- TA5214 Advanced Rock Mechanics II
- TA6112 Tunneling Method
- TA6118 Modeling of Natural Structures
The time for using the laboratory follows the regulations from UPT K3L, namely during working hours from 07.00 – 17.00 WIB Monday – Friday. Use of the laboratory outside of business hours must be approved by the laboratory manager.
