Welcome to the Sustainable Energy Undergraduate Distinction

SE@M Undergraduate Distinction program is a “build your own” program that honors and supports our community of students from different majors focused on learning about and shifting the landscape on sustainable energy: sustainable and affordable buildings/communities, renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind), energy storage, policy and business solutions for sustainable systems and energy equity. SE@M looks to encourage, recruit, and train next generation energy professionals that will find innovative and holistic solutions to challenges such as climate change, clean energy transition, and energy equity. SE@M graduation distinction will consist of a green regalia honor cord and a footnote in the graduation bulletin.  

Graduate Requirements

To earn a SE@M distinction students must meet a minimum of number of points based on the merits impact and relevance from three categories: LEARN (e.g. courses) , APPLY (e.g. internships) and BUILD COMMUNITY (e.g. leadership in students’ organizations). 

With SE@M , we want to create a community of people focused on learning about and shifting the landscape of renewable and sustainable energy. In order to meet the needs and challenges of the energy transition, we need as many energy professionals as possible to be involved in sustainable energy – not just energy engineers but geologists, economists, computer scientists, policy makers and more. Through this program, we are recognizing what Mines students are already doing and also support, encourage, and make it easier for even more students to find their path in sustainable energy.

Examples of SE@M related topics are: energy efficiency, energy conservation, sustainable buildings and communities, renewable energies, energy storage, energy policy, energy equity, and sustainable transportation.

In 2024, the year of our 150th anniversary, we will celebrate Colorado School of Mines’ past, present and possibilities. By celebrating and supporting the Campaign for MINES@150 you will help elevate Mines to be an accessible, top-of-mind and first-choice for students, faculty, staff, recruiters and other external partners. When you give, you are ensuring Mines becomes even more distinctive and highly sought-after by future students, alumni, industry, and government partners over the next 150 years. We look forward to celebrating Mines’ sesquicentennial with you and recognizing the key role you play in making the MINES@150 vision a reality through your investments of time, talent and treasure.
