Materials & Manufacturing

Terry Lowe, research professor in metallurgical and materials engineering at Colorado School of Mines, was awarded the 2023 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Medal from the University of California
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.
Funded by a National Science Foundation grant, a group of local high school teachers spend part of their summer break getting hands-on training in additive manufacturing.
At Mines, teams of researchers are working on the hydrogen problem — from developing electrolyzers to separate hydrogen from other energy sources to developing and testing the ceramic materials in fuel cells and making them commercially viable and cost-effective.
By Ashley Spurgeon, Special to Mines Research Magazine Electrolysis plays a significant role in sourcing hydrogen for use in fuel cells and other energy technologies. But the ceramic materials used in
By Jasmine Leonas, Special to Mines Research Magazine Fusion, the process that powers the sun and the stars, has long been a part of the conversation about low-carbon sources of electricity. Unlike
Chemistry's Svitlana Pylypenko is looking for answers to questions of cost, durability and performance at the microscopic — and even nano — scale.
Fueled by Mines’ materials science program, the goal of the Institute for Data-Driven Dynamical Design (ID4) is to harness the power of advanced computation and artificial intelligence to accelerate discovery in material science
Emmelia Ashton, a junior majoring in metallurgical and materials engineering, was awarded the scholarship as part of the 2022-2024 Hollings class. She was the only student to win from the state of Colorado this year.
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.
