One of the world’s best, in Golden

Seeing is believing.

Colorado School of Mines is one of the country’s oldest and most distinctive STEM universities—a place where curious, ambitious and brainy* students work closely with professors, researchers and industry professionals to engineer solutions to the world’s most pressing Earth, energy and environment challenges. 

That we also happen to sit in one of the country’s most desirable cities (and just minutes from downtown Denver and the Rocky Mountains) hardly seems fair.

If you’ve not yet explored Mines, have a look at our 90-second campus tour and then come see us for a closer (and somewhat slower) look.
