Colorado School of Mines (CSM) is a public research university founded in
1874 and is long known for its excellent academic programs dedicated to
engineering and applied sciences. It is located in Golden, CO against the
foothills of the Rocky Mountains, 15 miles west from Denver, and boasts a
very reasonable cost of living. BRL at CSM provides excellent opportunities
for graduate students who want to develop research expertise and excel in
rehabilitation robotics, prosthetics and a variety of applications of
mechatronics and haptics in medicine, thanks to the Center for Biomechanics
and Rehabilitation Research at CSM, and close proximity to strong medical
research institutions including University of Colorado Anschutz Medical
Campus and Denver Children's Hospital.
