Your investment in our students plays a critical role

South Dakota Mines offers a rigorous academic curriculum focused on developing communication, leadership, and teamwork skills. Our bachelor's, master's, and PhD degrees in a wide range of engineering and science disciplines provide employers with candidates who not only offer technical skills but also the ability to think critically and lead. Through our partnership opportunities, we can work together to meet our educational mission while supporting your company's corporate priorities and strategic business objectives. 

Design an Engagement and Investment Strategy from Several Areas on Campus

  • STUDENTS - Scholarships are the number one priority for our university. Corporate sponsored scholarships allow South Dakota Mines to attract, retain, and graduate top technical talent.

  • FACULTY / DEPARTMENT - Supporting departmental needs or establishing a distinguished professorship demonstrates a company's commitment to higher education.

  • PROGRAMS / CAMPUS INITIATIVES - Corporate investment will help develop and enhance programs to meet emerging needs now and in the future. Program and initiative sponsorship increases diversity and provides practical experiences for students.

  • FACILITIES - Funding existing and new facilities allows a company to have a long-term impact on the university. Naming opportunities are available.

  • RESEARCH AND EQUIPMENT - With support, research thrives at Mines, impacting the Rushmore region and beyond.

  • CORPORATE MATCHING FUNDS - By matching employee contributions to Mines, companies multiply their impact and encourage employee philanthropy.
