The Mines-ACC team is one of just 12 selected across North America for the three-year competition in which student teams are tasked to design, build, test and integrate an advanced EV battery into a future Stellantis vehicle
It’s getting more expensive to live in Colorado. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates heating bills for those with natural gas will go up 28 percent and electricity costs will rise 10 percent
If humans are going to establish a long-term presence on the Moon, they’ll need resources – and more than just water and oxygen. They’ll need metals, minerals and other materials sourced not only from Earth but also the lunar surface itself.
Mines student and faculty researchers are collaborating with industry partner Lunar Outpost to compete in NASA's Break the Ice Challenge for the chance to win $1.5 million in prizes to further develop an ice-digging lunar rover.
Neal Sullivan, director of the Colorado Fuel Cell Center, explains the process that turns intermittent wind and solar energy into carbon-free green hydrogen
Led by Mechanical Engineering's Veronica Eliasson, Mines researchers have found a way to make Direct Ink Writing, an expensive 3D-printing process for specialty materials, more accessible.
What’s the best way to transport dirt on the Moon? University students from around the world have been considering this challenge for months. Working versions of their solutions will be on display May 31-June 1 at Colorado School of Mines.
Ava Segal’s interactive balance-training system, called Steadiplay, uses body motion on an instrumented wobble board for real-time control of a wireless robot, providing users with feedback and balance rankings, similar to fitness apps like Strava.
University Distinguished Professor and University Distinguished Teaching Professor are the highest honorific titles that can be conferred on a professor at Mines.
Owen Hildreth, associate professor of mechanical engineering, has developed a low-cost chemical post-processing method to cut the cost and time required to get a component to a useable state.
