  • Mission:
  • Colorado School of Mines (Mines) is dedicated to educating students and professionals in the applied sciences, engineering and associated fields relating to four key focus areas: earth, energy, materials and environment. Colorado School of Mines is known around the world for its unparalleled education and research programs. The school is dedicated to meeting the resource development needs of a rapidly evolving, technology-based global society through the creation and application of new knowledge and innovative solutions to today’s greatest challenges. Mines’ success is seen in the caliber of its faculty, the quality of its facilities, the demand for its graduates, and the achievements of its alumni.

  • History:
  • Colorado School of Mines was established in 1874 by Colorado’s Territorial Legislature, which recognized the need for an institution of higher education to serve the burgeoning mining activities in the region. Today, Mines offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees through 14 academic departments, and maintains the highest admission requirements of any university in Colorado.

    Mines is internationally recognized for its focused and rigorous approach to education and research, and it prospers by cultivating its broad expertise across disciplines. The school is growing in distinction as a top-tier research institution, attracting more than $51.4 million in research funding last year and housing 38 independent research centers and institutes. Mines’ world-class faculty of nearly 300 scholars hold a total of 24 endowed professorships and chairs, and a full 100 percent of full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty hold doctoral degrees. Nearly 4,500 students attend Mines, originating from 48 states and 69 countries.

    The school uniquely prepares students to become the leaders and innovators of tomorrow through hands-on experiential education offered in an environment of intellectual vitality. A Mines education is dually focused, emphasizing both practical problem-solving skills and creative critical-thinking abilities. Mines students are academically exceptional, with average freshman SAT and ACT scores of 1260 and 28, respectively, and an average GPA of 3.7. An average undergraduate class size of 26 students and a student/faculty ratio of 14:1 ensure individualized attention and the development of the versatile skills required for success in the contemporary workforce.
