Founded in 1874, Mines was the first public institution of higher learning to open its doors in Colorado.  Mines has an international reputation for excellence in engineering and applied sciences.  We are committed to serving the people of Colorado, our nation and the global community in the development and stewardship of the Earth’s resources.  Mines is consistently ranked among the top engineering college in the United States and ranks number one as the best public school in the state for best value colleges.

Mines is located in the heart of Golden, Colorado, a western suburb of Denver.  The campus location offers a small-town ambiance with close proximity to all that the Denver metropolitan area has to offer with an abundance of cultural events, museums, theaters and sporting venues. An arid climate and an average 300 days of sunshine per year make the area an ideal place to live, work and play.
