THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES
Dean Kevin Moore
Research in CECS is motivated by the goal of improving people's lives by attacking fundamental problems facing society. Many of our programs aim to enable a better quality of life in the natural and built environment through a focus on livable, intelligent and sustainable infrastructure.
The College of Engineering and Computational Sciences (CECS) was formed in August 2011 as the first-ever College at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) through the merger of the former Division of Engineering, Division of Environmental Science and Engineering, and Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences.
CECS comprises four of the academic units and one program at CSM:
- Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics
- Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
- Department of Mechanical Engineering
- EPICS Program
Through these departments CECS is proud to offer rigorous and highly-regarded educational programs as well as cutting-edge research that matters. As Dean of the school, my vision is that CECS will
... house educational, research, and outreach programs of distinction… known for their high quality, innovation, and impact on improving the lives of people … through a focus on engineering design and research challenges related to earth, energy, and the natural and built environments … with departments and programs that are destinations of choice for undergraduate and graduate students, employers, and funding agencies from around the world ...
Today over 2100 students and more than 70 faculty members are working toward this vision. If you are looking for a challenge though a world class education, if you want the skills you need to make a difference in the world, if you are interested in pursuing original research, or if you want to be part of the rich traditions of an institution that has been committed to serving the people of Colorado, the nation, and the global community since the 1870’s, I invite you to join us in the College of Engineering and Computational Sciences at the Colorado School of Mines.
Sincerely, Kevin L. Moore, Dean
