A rapidly advancing research area, spintronics explores methods to exploit a property of electrons to encode information faster and in a more energy efficient fashion than conventional computing electronics.
The goal of the two-day NSF Workshop on Quantum Engineering Education on Feb. 25-26 is to build a roadmap to establishing the robust and diverse student pipeline and educational infrastructure that the U.S. and its businesses need to lead the quantum revolution.
Colorado School of Mines’ Computer Science Department has received funding from Google to create a mentorship program to encourage undergraduate students from underrepresented groups to pursue graduate education and research in computer science.
“Artificial intelligence is certainly on the rise and has been for several years,” said Tracy Camp, department head and professor of computer science at Mines. “There’s just so much in our world today where we can use machine learning or AI to improve on our society or lives.”
The new programs draw from the core areas of expertise Mines is known for — from civil and environmental engineering to extraction to materials science — to create an interdisciplinary field of study that prepares students for the next step in their careers.
