Colorado School of Mines is a public research university devoted to engineering and applied science. Our campus is located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains town of Golden, a high-technology enterprise region 15 miles west of downtown Denver. We are minutes away from Boulder and Denver, offering a unique combination of excellent outdoor activities (the world's finest ski slopes, hiking, backpacking, mountain and road biking, white water rafting, and classic rock climbing crags) coupled with large city amenities.

Colorado School of Mines is committed to promote the stewardship of the Earth and its resource. The Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department is home for REMRSEC (Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center), one of the 31 NSF-funded MRSEC nationwide , and the only one that is devoted on materials for renewable energy. We have state-of-the-art facilities for materials synthesis, characterization and micro-fabrications.


Colorado School of Mines is among the Alliance that manages the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NREL is in our backyard and has close ties with us. Plenty of collaborative opportunities also exit between us and other Front Range Institutions in our neighborhood, such as NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), UC-Boulder , UC-Health Science Center , and Colorado State University.
