Pei, a civil and environmental engineering associate professor, was honored by Engineering News-Record for his research on wood structures and their resiliency in earthquakes
“There is a significant need to develop treatment approaches that eliminate PFAS as opposed to moving them around amongst different waste streams,” said Christopher Bellona, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering.
Colorado School of Mines is designing a new pathway for students to build careers in the heavy construction industry, thanks to a three-year, $900,000 grant from The Beavers Charitable Trust.
Jacob Grasmick, PhD’ 19 in underground construction and tunneling, is finding real world applications for his dissertation research
A new Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering launching this fall at Colorado School of Mines will help meet the needs of the public and private entities that are rebuilding and improving the nation's existing infrastructure.
PFAS@Mines will focus on the development of treatment strategies for most challenging PFAS sites, improved methods to characterize human exposure, and improved tools for assessing sites that have been impacted by PFAS.
"This is a critical effort, as it provides us with confidence that self-collected blood samples provide just as good – if not, in some cases, better – data on human exposure,” said Chris Higgins, University Distinguished Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
The Office of Academic Affairs at Colorado School of Mines is proud to announce the winners of the 2022-2023 Faculty Awards for excellence in teaching, research and mentorship. The annual awards
Shiling Pei, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, will simulate a series of large earthquakes on a full-scale, 10-story mass timber building this spring – the world’s tallest full-scale building ever tested on an earthquake simulator, or shake table.
Two of the three winning papers in the Rewilding the Colorado River Contest came from Mines sophomores.
