Why Mines

Located in the heart of Golden, Colo., Mines offers a safe campus with spectacular views and an environment that is both tranquil and exciting. The academics are challenging, yet the Rocky Mountains are a stress-free zone offering an abundance of recreational activities. And Denver is just a short distance away with museums, professional sports and more.

Your son or daughter will study advanced engineering, mathematics, applied science, economics and the liberal arts, preparing for a rewarding career in a diverse and global economy. 

Mines students work hard, and they take advantage of rich minors (43 minors), such as Economics and Business, Humanitarian Engineering, McBride Honors (a minor in Public Affairs), Bio-Medical, Bio-Physics, Bio-Materials and the Liberal Arts. These programs engage and prepare them for leadership roles and unique job opportunities that can influence positive change in the world. 

Job placements are high, starting salaries average $68,000 per year, and Mines graduates are always proud to display their silver diplomas, a symbol that connects them with other outstanding Mines graduates around the world.
