A Message from the Dean
Welcome to the College of Engineering and Computational Sciences at Colorado School of Mines!
In CECS the reason we are here is to work towards a sustainable future where everyone on the planet can have a fair and equitable quality of life that allows them to achieve whatever they aspire to. A story I like to tell is that “in most of the developing areas of the world, if you can bring roads, reliable housing, energy, water, and fiber optics, that will promote sanitation, agriculture and business, which will lead to health and commerce, which lead to stability and peace, which allow a community to focus on education, which enables people to achieve their dreams. With this chain of development you have helped raise the quality of life and established a more sustainable society. ” The programs in CECS, while varied, can all be found somewhere along the chain of development described above, with many focusing directly on livable, intelligent, and sustainable infrastructure in the natural and built environment while others offer supporting technology and skills. All are motivated by the desire to make a positive impact.
Today, over 300 students and 120 faculty members are working toward this vision. If you are looking for the challenge of a world-class education, if you want the skills you need to make a difference in the world, if you are interested in pursuing original research or if you want to be part of the rich traditions of an institution that has been committed to serving the people of Colorado the nation, and the global community since the 1870s, I invite you to join us in the College of Engineering and Computational Sciences at Colorado School of Mines.
