FROM THE ARCHITECTS:
The new CoorsTek Center at the Colorado School of Mines is an education and research facility dedicated to connecting students, faculty, researchers, and industry professionals from around the world. Located in the heart of campus, the four-story building is a significant milestone in a multigenerational partnership between Mines, the Coors family, and CoorsTek, a leader in technical ceramics manufacturing.
The new Center supports a broad range of academic and research activities. The building is home to the College of Applied Science and Engineering (CASE) and Department of Physics, and supports collaborative partnerships among the college’s three other departments and two interdisciplinary programs: the Department of Chemistry and Geochemistry, the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, the Materials Science Program, and the Nuclear Science and Engineering Program.
