“Mines is a place that pushed me to become a proud Malaysian and Muslim woman and also a workaholic. Most importantly, I became a person who is able to withstand whatever comes, and I found myself again. This place will always have a special place in my heart.”

Farah Husna Mustafa Kamal ’19, Petroleum Engineering

“I chose Mines for my PhD because it is one of the few schools in the country that still has a metallurgy program. My research is on quench and partitioning steels (QP steels), and essentially my job is to optimize them, make them better.”

Casey Gilliams
PhD student, metallurgical and materials engineering

“I really fell into the symbolism of the M Climb. This idea of the rock representing all of the work that I’m going to do over the course of my time here at Mines…It’s weird to me that that rock almost means more to me than my diploma…because it’s a representation of all of the work I put in.”

Brandon Bakka ’19, Chemical Engineering
