The Capstone Design@Mines program combines students from the Civil, Electrical, Environmental, and Mechanical Engineering.
The program uses client-driven projects to engage students in projects that matter. Students in the EDS BSE degree also participate in the Capstone Design@Mines program.
CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) produces graduates who design and maintain sustainable built and natural environments. Civil and environmental engineers are responsible for our civil infrastructure (buildings, roads, bridges, reservoirs, water and wastewater treatment and delivery), for prevention and mitigation of geohazards, and for protection and restoration of our natural environment.
The distinguished EE program at Mines excels in three focus areas: energy and power systems, information and systems sciences, and antennas and wireless communications. Graduates from EE at Mines find employment in the power industry, engineering consulting, renewable energy, aerospace, and communications, as well as companies that rely on embedded intelligence to manage data and systems.
The Mechanical Engineering (ME) program is designed not only to provide students with a strong knowledge and skill base in core Mechanical Engineering fields, but also an opportunity to explore areas of more advanced topics in exciting fields like energy, biomechanics, robotics, engineering design, and materials. In addition, the ME program focuses on helping students develop effective technical communication skills and a curiosity that leads to lifelong learning.
This program is a renaissance and human-centric degree with curricular themes in fundamental science and engineering, in humanities, social science, economics and business, a student-chosen contemporary technical focus area with strong societal implications, and a multi-year design studio that progressively integrates these themes in complex project settings.
