Residents of Iowa and Nebraska can now benefit from reduced tuition rates at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T).

The School of Mines offers ten outstanding engineering programs. These include chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, geological, industrial, mechanical, metallurgical and mining. Majors in chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics, physics and interdisciplinary science complete the undergraduate program.
The Graduate School offers ten Master of Science degree programs.

Doctoral degrees are offered in atmospheric, environmental, and water resources; geology and geological engineering and materials engineering and science.
Each year over 100 companies visit the Tech campus to employ its graduates and to offer attractive co- operative ( co- op) and internship opportunities to juniors and seniors. Approximately 76% of each year's senior class participate in co- op/ internship programs. Last fall the annual career fair attracted over 1,000 students who visited with over 60 company representatives.
SDSM& T is located in Rapid City which lies between the mysterious South Dakota Badlands and the magnificent beauty of the Black Hills. Only a short distance from the campus is the majestic Mt. Rushmore and the emerging Crazy Horse Monument. With 56,000 residents Rapid City offers many diverse and interesting attractions for college students. Protection from the adjacent mountains produces unexpectedly mild winters, when it is common for temperatures to rise into the 50' s and 60' s. The Black Hills offer Tech students such activities as hiking, biking, skiing, snowboarding, camping, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and mountain climbing.
