About Colorado School of Mines

Colorado School of Mines is an elite public research university in Golden, Colorado devoted to engineering and applied science. Since its founding in 1874, it has become one the few institutions in the world having broad expertise in resource exploration, extraction, production and utilization. Its rigorous curriculum and research programs emphasize responsible stewardship of the earth and its resources.

At Mines, we do more than focus on science, engineering and mathematics. We inspire students to be innovators, experts and entrepreneurs and address the greatest challenges that face our planet (and beyond). We work to enroll a graduate community that is diverse in background, culture, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and professional and life experiences. As the world faces a crisis in balancing resource availability with environmental protection, Mines is engineering the right way.
