At the School of Mines, we believe in the power of exchange and strive to develop cross-cultural connections. Our students study in Spain and attend conferences in Dubai, conduct research in India and compete in the United Kingdom. Many scientists and engineers work on collaborative projects that involve multicultural teams or travel to unfamiliar cultures. International experience through study abroad is a great way to gain a broader world view and global working experience.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE: In Tanzania, design teams demonstrated a water-purification system with the potential to provide drinking water, an accomplishment they replicated in Mongolia and Egypt. Students in Chile refurbished a school for orphans. Students in Uganda developed a water system for a university. Whether you're studying sustainability in Copenhagen or involved in a humanitarian project in Haiti, you'll be engineering the solutions of tomorrow and creating a better world today. Our Study Abroad experiences aren't just life-changing, they change lives.
The benefits of studying abroad are universal. You will be inspired by the sites you will see, the people you will meet and the experiences you will have. Whether you decide to go for a year, a semester, a summer, or for just a few weeks with one of the School of Mine's short-term programs, you will earn credits toward your degree program.
Preparing for Travel

Preparing for Travel
For many students, coming home to SD Mines requires as much of an adjustment as going abroad did. You may find that the School of Mines is physically different from when you left, and some faces among faculty, staff, and students are new. Some students breeze right through these changes, others find them quite disconcerting.
