Program Description


Mineral and Energy Economics Program Description

In an increasingly global and technical world, government and industry leaders in the mineral and energy areas require a strong foundation in economic and business skills. The division offers such skills in unique programs leading to MS and PhD degrees in Mineral and Energy Economics. Coursework and research emphasizes the use of models to aid in decision making. Beyond the core courses students
in the Mineral and Energy Economics Program may select, in consultation with their advisor from a set of electives that fit their specialized needs and educational goals. This may include advanced courses in Applied Economics, Finance and Operations Research.

Engineering and Technology Management Program Description

The division also offers an MS degree in Engineering and Technology Management (ETM). The ETM degree program is designed to integrate the technical elements of engineering practice with the managerial perspective of modern engineering and technology management. A major focus is on the business and management principles related to this integration. The ETM Program provides the analytical tools and managerial perspective needed to effectively function in a highly competitive and technologically complex business economy.

Students in the ETM Program may select elective courses from two areas of focus: Engineering Management and Optimization or Technology Management and Innovation. The Optimization courses focus on developing knowledge of advanced operations research, optimization and decision-making techniques applicable to a wide array of business and engineering problems. The Engineering Management courses emphasize valuable techniques for managing large engineering and technical projects effectively and efficiently. The Strategy and Innovation courses teach the correct match between organizational strategies and structures to maximize the competitive power of technology with a particular emphasis on management issues associated with the modern business enterprise.

Combined Degree Program Option

Mines undergraduate students have the opportunity to begin work on an MS degree in Mineral and Energy Economics or Engineering and Technology Management while completing their bachelor’s degree at Mines. The Mineral and Energy Economics Combined Degree Program provides the vehicle for students to use undergraduate coursework as part of their graduate degree curriculum. For more information please contact the EB Office or visit the Division of Economics and Business website.

Graduate Certificate in Resource Commodity Analytics

The Mines graduate certificate in Resource Commodity Analytics (RCA) is a four-course program that provides training in advanced quantitative and financial analysis applied to energy and mineral industries. The RCA certificate program takes the most quantitative aspects of our world-renowned graduate programs in Mineral and Energy Economics, and Engineering and Technology Management, and distills them into an accelerated certificate. This program is designed for professionals and recent graduates who want to acquire new skills for career advancement or get a head start on a graduate degree. Courses in the program focus on natural resource markets and regulation, data analysis and forecasting, and financial valuation. The course of study is flexible enough to be completed in one intensive semester or over four semesters depending on the student’s needs and interests.
