The Pursuit of Excellence:  Mines Strategic Plan

The nation needs more well prepared engineers and scientists to help meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. Engineering and science intensive industries account for 40 percent of the gross domestic product of the United States, and occupations in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are projected to grow by almost 20 percent by 2022. The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology will do its part to help meet this need. This strategic plan will guide our intentional growth and improvement through 2022.
