Organization

The Henry Krumb School of Mines (HKSM) within The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) has three units:

The Department of Earth and Environmental Engineering (EEE):

With the creation of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, a major initiative in the study of Earth, its environment and society, the traditional programs of HKSM in mining, mineral processing, and extractive metallurgy were expanded in the late nineties to encompass environmental concerns related to the use of materials, energy and water resources, and to reflect the growing interdisciplinary nature of research and  its application in these fields. The EEE is one of nine departments of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) with a focus on the development and application of technology for the sustainable development, use and integrated management of Earth’s resources.

The interdepartmental program in Materials Science and Engineering is the successor of the HKSM traditional physical metallurgy program and focuses on the design of advanced materials and the effects of composition and processing on material properties.

The Earth Engineering Center is the engineering unit of the Earth Institute and is dedicated to directing engineering research towards the reconfiguring of industrial activities with full understanding of their environmental impacts. Several faculty of the Henry Krumb School of Mines are associated with the Earth Engineering Center.
