Upcoming ACS Colloid and Surface Science Symposium – July 2022
Hosted by Mines
The 96th American Chemical Society Colloid and Surface Science Symposium is planned to be held in person in Golden, Colorado, July 10-13, 2022. With a fantastic location near a world class airport in Denver, the Symposium promises to be an easily accessible starting point for adventuring in the Colorado Rockies. Only 1.5 hrs from Rocky Mountain National Park and even closer to world class outdoor activities such as hiking and mountain biking, the Symposium should be both intellectually and physically stimulating.
The early registration deadline is May 31, 2022.

Want to know what makes a great department? Our 75-year history was written “by the family, for the family,” as coined by new department head Anuj Chauhan. The book was composed from student and faculty interviews, surveys of the Oredigger yearbook and commencement bulletins, department records, and registrar data, among other sources. The book can be found under our department history tab or by clicking here.
In 2024, the year of our 150th anniversary, we will celebrate Colorado School of Mines’ past, present and possibilities. By celebrating and supporting the Campaign for MINES@150 you will help elevate Mines to be an accessible, top-of-mind and first-choice for students, faculty, staff, recruiters and other external partners. When you give, you are ensuring Mines becomes even more distinctive and highly sought-after by future students, alumni, industry, and government partners over the next 150 years. We look forward to celebrating Mines’ sesquicentennial with you and recognizing the key role you play in making the MINES@150 vision a reality through your investments of time, talent and treasure.
Welcome, from the Mines CBE family!
Excellent teaching, cutting-edge research
We are offering an updated ABET-accredited degree in chemical engineering. This revision modernizes our curriculum, offers increased flexibility in elective options and provides optional specialty tracks in Process Engineering and Biological Engineering for those who want to focus their degree.
In addition, we maintain a high-quality, well-funded research program ($7-8 million per year in research awards) with strong participation from students at both graduate and undergraduate levels. About 80 graduate and postdoctoral students study within a broad research menu, including major programs in conventional and renewable energy, soft materials and biotechnology, catalysis and separations, simulation and modeling and pedagogy with top-notch faculty, including one PECASE award winner and seven NSF CAREER Award winners.
These research and educational activities take place in one of the most scenic locations in the United States. With over 300 days per year of sunshine and the proximity to Denver and the Rocky Mountains, this area provides a combination of year-round cultural, recreational and entertainment opportunities that are virtually unmatched anywhere.
