The Colorado School of Mines and MICROMINE Partner to Develop Talented Students and Teachers within the Geology and Geological Engineering Department
MICROMINE’s Academic Licence Scheme (ALS) provides strategic and multifaceted foundations, which include continued support, learning resources and training materials and access to MICROMINE wider community.
MICROMINE considers these educational partnerships to be a strategic investment in the development of local communities and the future of the mining industry. Signing this new agreement with Colorado School of Mines will prove to be a strong alliance.
“Highly skilled graduates are in great demand by mining companies around the world. The combination between Mines' rigorous degree program and Micromine’s easy-to-use exploration and mine design solution, provides the perfect combination between students receiving technical training and hands-on exploration and 3D mining design exposure” commenting Claire Tuder, MICROMINE’s General Manager.
Colorado School of Mines is a public research university devoted to engineering and applied science. It has the highest admissions standards of any public university in Colorado and among the highest of any public university in the U.S.
“Mines is a small university, serving a worldwide community, committed to a universal mission — to create solutions related to earth, energy and the environment” explained Dr. Nigel T. Middleton, Senior Vice President for Strategic Enterprises.
Mines has distinguished itself by developing a curriculum and research program geared towards responsible stewardship of the earth and its resources. In addition to strong education and research programs in traditional fields of science and engineering, Mines is one of a very few institutions in the world having broad expertise in resource exploration, extraction, production and utilization. As such, Mines occupies a unique position among the world's institutions of higher education.
Since its founding in 1874, the translation of the school's mission into educational programs has been influenced by the needs of society. Those needs are now focused more clearly than ever before. The world faces a crisis in balancing resource availability with environmental protection and Mines and its programs are central to the solution.
Mines offers all the advantages of a world-class research institution with a size that allows for personal attention.
"Colorado School of Mines' Geology and Geological Engineering Department is looking forward to having MICROMINE 2016 available to its student body starting in 2016-2017. MICROMINE's staff have been diligent and timely about making this transition a success and CSM's Society of Economic Geology Student Chapter looks forward to a short course on the software in the fall" commented Nicole Allen, CSM SEG Officer 2016-2017, M.Sc. Candidate under Prof. Murray Hitzman, Colorado School of Mines.
Now working with more than 117 college and university partners around the world, MICROMINE helps attract and develop talented students and teachers who can help achieve a more technically proficient global mining workforce.
Continuing to grow globally, MICROMINE’s Academic Licence Scheme adds another world class school to the list of partners, signing this agreement with Colorado School of Mines (Mines), Geology and Geological Engineering Department.
