Endowed chairs and professorships build an outstanding faculty
Dr. Satish Ranade is the first recipient and current holder of the PNM Endowed Chair for Utility Management.
Excellent faculty is the cornerstone of every university and NMSU is no exception. The College of Engineering takes great pride in the exceptional faculty that we have attracted over the years and are working to establish endowed chairs and professorships in each of the engineering departments as a means of rewarding this excellence as well as attracting pre-eminent teachers and researchers from throughout the country. Earnings from endowed chairs and professorships provide funding for salaries, research and equipment well above and beyond what normal university resources can provide.
Capstone projects like the design and building of this first-place winning remote-controlled robot have a home in the NewTec Capstone Laboratory.
Endowed scholarships support our students
The College of Engineering is working to enhance scholarship opportunities for students who have chosen to begin or continue their education. Earnings from endowed scholarships provide a continual source that provides access to higher education for those who might not be able to attend college otherwise. They reward academic excellence, and can help to attract some of the most talented scholars from around the country. Scholarships help students remain focused on their degree programs and can make a difference in their ability to graduate and enter the workforce in a timely manner.
Facility naming opportunities bring recognition and support at all levels
Naming of the respective engineering departments and prominent facilities within the College of Engineering provides a unique opportunity to align our commitment to excellence with an individual or corporate entity that unwaveringly exemplifies these qualities through ethics, professionalism and integrity. A naming endowment brings more than prestige. Through association, named engineering departments and associated facilities reflect the achievements and ideals of their namesakes and help to provide state-of-the art facilities, equipment and laboratories for our students. For more information on naming opportunities within the College of Engineering, contact Patricia Sullivan, Assistant Dean.
*Naming of departments and facilities are subject to approval by the NMSU President and Board of Regents.
