Welcome to the College of Engineering
From its beginning in 1891 with the first courses offered in civil and mechanical engineering, New Mexico State University’s College of Engineering is the oldest and largest in the state. The college has come to be a recognized leader in preparing students for rewarding careers. Our graduates are highly sought by businesses, government institutions and academia throughout the United States and in many foreign countries. Our faculty members have distinguished themselves with numerous awards in both teaching and research.
For many engineers building things is a draw to the profession, but for Sonya Cooper preserving structures is her passion. Cooper, associate dean of academics at New Mexico State University’s College of Engineering, spent the fall semester on sabbatical developing treatments to stabilize, preserve and restore landmarks for the United States National Park Service through the Vanishing Treasures program.
The Engineer’s Council at New Mexico State University is hosting Nerds for Knowledge, a book drive to benefit the Ka-Boyce High School in Swaziland, a country in southern Africa.
The drive is under the sponsorship of African Library Project, an organization that gives volunteers in the U.S. the opportunity to organize book drives and ship books to a partner library in Africa.
