Aggie Ingeniero, November 2020




Keeping up with the rapidly changing advances in engineering can be daunting. Our faculty are nimble enough to design program curricula to make them relevant in a changing world. More difficult, however, is modernizing our aging facilities.The college is presented with an exciting opportunity to replace one of our oldest buildings – Thomas and Brown Hall, nearly 50 years old and home to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. We envision a new kind of facility that will cater to all learning modes (online, classroom, experiential) and house advanced research laboratory(ies). We hope to build an environment that breaks down the silos of the various engineering disciplines, bringing them together for real-world, interdisciplinary and student-centric experiences. The new facility will house our Eloy Torrez Family Engineering Learning Communities which provides tutoring services and non-cognitive skills to students. We also envision moving part of our Aggie Innovation Space into the new building.

Funding for this endeavor is expected from a future GO Bond opportunity, but we will soon launch our own effort to raise funds for this rare and important opportunity to modernize our facilities. We hope that you will help us make this plan a reality.

NMSU’s Aggies Without Limits live up to their name

New Mexico State University’s Aggies Without Limits have been doing community service projects both abroad and locally since 2007, often facing challenges such as having no running water, lodging, or even electricity. But the can-do attitude of these hearty volunteers always prevails — even when it comes to hauling 700-pound steel beams by hand for a pedestrian bridge being erected on the Otero County Fairgrounds in Alamogordo...Read More>>
