Future Students and Families:
Getting to Know the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology
Small in Size. Big in Stature. Unmatched in Value.
You might be very familiar with Mines or you might have just found out about us as part of your college search. Either way, we hope you'll investigate our website, talk with our Admissions Office, request Mines materials, and — the most informative step of all — come for a visit.*
We're proud of the story we have to tell. Mines has a history that precedes South Dakota statehood and a legacy that grows in stature with every graduating class. We prepare our students to tackle the complex problems of the future — and while we think the education they receive can be measured in more than just dollars, we're proud that upon graduation, they consistently outearn graduates from the nation's most prestigious Ivy League schools.
With outstanding faculty, small classes, and lots of opportunities for hands-on projects, research, and internships and co-ops, Mines enriches students via experience and community. Join us and begin your legacy.
