Energy and Materials


Mines' Jeff Squier and CSU's Randy Bartels were recently awarded a $1.2 million grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to build the electronics and light detectors fast enough to capture and count single photons.
More than 25 C-MAPP industry partners judged the research projects, networked with students and presented valuable advice regarding job interviewing and potential career paths.
Gabriel Fierro, assistant professor of computer science, is working to develop a standard way of describing buildings and their data to make it easier to develop software for building systems.
Jesse Hudspeth, a PhD student in chemistry, is spending a year in Austria studying proteins in certain mushrooms that synthesize psilocybin, which can produce psychedelic effects.
We asked Xiaoli Zhang, associate professor of mechanical engineering, to tell us more about how machines can learn and share knowledge to improve manufacturing processes.
“The buzzword is rational drug design," said Christine Morrison, assistant professor of chemistry. "We’re being very deliberate about the protein we’re targeting and the inhibitors we’re building, rather than just throwing spaghetti at the wall.”
The Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering at Mines will prepare engineers for careers working with one of the world’s most versatile materials. Among the industries that rely on ceramics and glass are semiconductors, electronics, defense, energy, healthcare, household goods, automotive and aerospace.
The honor, which recognizes the Colorado School of Mines doctoral graduate whose thesis demonstrates the greatest potential for societal impact, was presented during Fall 2022 Graduate Commencement on Dec. 16.
Colorado School of Mines and Lunar Outpost are teaming up to build a lunar excavation rover, the Outpost Digger System (ODS). This rover will be capable of excavating nearly 1 ton of concrete-hard
