Colorado School of Mines is a public research university focused on science and engineering, where students and faculty together address the great challenges society faces today—particularly those related to the Earth, energy and the environment.
Founded in 1874, the school offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, science, and mathematics, with a focus on energy and the environment. While Mines does offer minor degrees in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, it only offers major degrees in STEM fields, with the exception of economics. In the Fall 2022 semester, the school had 7,408 students enrolled, with 5,733 in an undergraduate program and 1,675 in a graduate program. The school has been co-educational since its founding; however, enrollment remains predominantly male (68.5% as of Fall 2022). In every QS World University Ranking from 2016 to 2022, the university was ranked as the top institution in the world for mineral and mining engineering. It is classified among “R1: Doctoral Universities – Very high research activity”.
