The Space Resources graduate program will be geared toward supporting professionals interested in expanding their knowledge and skills into the exploration and utilization of resources in space.  The program will focus on learning the core knowledge in this field and developing design practices in the identification, extraction, processing, and responsible use of available resources in the Solar System.

Start this Spring 2018 with the EGGN 598C Space Resources Fundamentals online course (synchronous, real time). These 3 credit hours and other courses taken in Spring 2018 may be applied toward your desired degree, as the program is fully implemented in Fall 2018. Once this happens, Mines will grant the following certificates and degrees:

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate
Complete a total of 12 credit hours with 9 credit hours from Space Resources core courses (Space Resources Fundamentals, Space Systems Engineering, Space Resources Design I, and the Space Resources Seminar) and 3 credit hours of an elective course chosen from the five Technical Specialization Tracks.

Master of Science Degree (M.S. Non-Thesis)
Complete a total of 30 credit hours with all 15 credit hours of Space Resources core courses and 15 additional credit hours from elective courses chosen from the five Technical Specialization Tracks.

Doctorate (Ph.D.)
Qualified students interested on pursuing research in space resources through a Ph.D. program in collaborating departments at Mines are encouraged to apply.  The degree requires 36 credit hours of coursework, 36 credit hours of research, and a doctoral dissertation.  All Space Resources core courses and technical electives from the five Technical Specialization Tracks count toward the degree.

First complete our Space Resources Program Interest Form to let us know your particular interests. Then, apply as a graduate non-degree student at Colorado School of Mines.  Once you have completed the simple application process, you can enroll in the Spring 2018 courses below.  Classes start on January 9, 2018 and both courses will be conducted fully online (synchronous, real time).  Credit hours earned from these two courses can be applied toward your degree, once the program is fully implemented in Fall 2018.
