Theme Park Engineering and Design

Colorado School of Mines

Our Purpose

The Theme Park Engineering and Design (TPED) Group at Colorado School of Mines is an organization open to all students interested in and/or aspiring to work in the niche industry of amusement attraction design, engineering, and operation/management. The organization offers chances to grow as a young professional and network with others that share the same passion. 

Who should get involved in Mines TPED?

Anyone who has the slight interest in theme park engineering and design should join!

The term “interest” encompasses a huge range; TPED is open to people who may have ridden a few rides and want to learn more, people who love everything Disney, people who want to ride as many roller coasters as possible, people who have always wanted to pursue a career in the design of amusement rides and attractions, and everyone in-between.

We are creating our very own haunted house right here on campus. You can come and visit us in the Spruce treehouse on Monday, October 30th from 7pm to 10pm.

We are working with MAC, Mines Little Theater, and Mines Resonance to make this haunted house as terrifyingly fun as possible.

So bring your friends and prepare for the scaring of your lives… If you DARE!!!
