Education and Research
Our faculty and students at all levels conduct more than $6 million in externally funded research every year, with many projects associated with Mines’ pioneering research centers.
Research centers with strong connections to Physics include the Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (REMRSEC), the Golden Energy Computing Organization (GECO), the Center for Microintegrated Optics for Advanced Bioimaging and Control (MOABC) and the Nuclear Science and Engineering Center (NuSEC).
Our faculty are consistently recognized for both their research and their teaching, while our graduate and undergraduate students are often the recipients of awards and grants.
