There are no easy degrees at Mines. We prepare graduates who tackle the most difficult challenges of the twenty-first century. We educate students to a high standard in a wide array of engineering and science disciplines. We expect hard work and lots of studying, but you are not alone. We want you to succeed. If you are willing to work, we will help you master the material. 1 in 5 of our students goes directly to graduate school, including medical school. We offer a wide array of accelerated master's programs in which our top students start graduate courses in their senior year and finish their master's in one additional year.
