Welcome from the Office of Undergraduate Studies
We are here to support students’ holistic educational experience and interdisciplinary exploration. In a world where challenges transcend the boundaries of traditional fields, Mines stands at the forefront of innovation by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration; interconnected knowledge empowers students with a dynamic and versatile education. Our curricula foster exploration of the intersections between engineering, the sciences, and beyond, thereby surpassing the boundaries of any single discipline and equipping graduates with the adaptable mindset needed to solve multifaceted global issues.
We believe that true understanding and growth comes from immersion in diverse experiences beyond classroom walls, offering our students a way to forge their future by recognizing and celebrating a rich array of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The Office of Undergraduate Studies is dedicated to nurturing the whole student—intellectually, socially, and ethically. Our commitment to growth extends to every facet of the Mines experience, ensuring that our students emerge not just as professionals in their chosen field, but as well-rounded individuals prepared to contribute meaningfully to society.
Colorado Engineering Council (CEC) Silver Medal Awards
The Colorado Engineering Council was founded on May 16, 1919, with eight charter member organizations. Today, the council’s twenty-two member organizations represent over 20,000 of Colorado’s engineers and scientists. For over 30 years, the CEC has recognized meritorious students at Mines and other universities across Colorado with the Silver Medal Award.
The Silver Medal Award honors recent graduates who have exhibited exceptional scholarship, integrity, and engineering abilities; finalists represent exemplary members of the Mines community. Applicants undergo a rigorous, 2-tiered application and selection process, which includes review by an internal Mines committee and in-person interviews with the CEC to determine the winner. Presented once each year at a standalone recognition event in spring, this ceremony recognizes three outstanding individuals from Mines, with the top finalist receiving the prestigious silver medallion.
