Welcome to the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Colorado School of Mines! Our mission is to prepare students to address current and future challenges in earth, energy and the environment by delivering high-quality research and educational programs in engineering and science.
We are home to ReNUWIt, the nation’s first National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for water, one of the world’s top Underground Construction and Tunneling Centers, a U.S. Department of Transportation Tier 1 University Transportation Center for Underground Infrastructure, and a $2 MM EPA National Priorities Grant to develop decision support tools to implement gray-green stormwater infrastructure.
