Robert H. Trent, Director

The emergence and progress of human society is marked by passage from one metal age to another. The keystone to our present economy is measured in minerals and energy and it would be difficult to conceive of a modern life without them. Within the career fields of minerals and energy, the opportunities are limited only by a person's ability to apply engineering principles in new and imaginative ways.

The School of Mineral Engineering is composed of the Department of Mining and Geological Engineering, the Department of Petroleum Engineering, the Mineral Industry Research Laboratory and the Petroleum Development Laboratory.
