REQUIREMENTS

The Space Resources graduate program is geared toward supporting professionals interested in expanding their knowledge and skills into the exploration and utilization of resources in space.  The program focuses 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 Space Resources Fundamentals (EGGN 598C) and Space Systems Engineering (EGGN 598B) online courses (synchronous, real time). These credit hours will be applied toward your desired degree. The following certificates and degrees are offered:

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.
 

APPLY AND ENROLL
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 will be applied toward your certificate or degree.
