Audiophiles can have a rare tour and demonstration of the revolutionary speaker technology developed by Paul Wilbur Klipsch at New Mexico State University from 1 to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4. Klipsch, a 1926 graduate of NMSU, pioneered audio systems by using scientific principles to develop a corner horn speaker that sounded more lifelike than any of its predecessors. The Paul W. Klipsch Museum in the Ed and Harold Foreman Engineering Complex will be open to the public, and tours led by electrical engineering faculty members will be given free of charge.
The National Science Foundation recently awarded New Mexico State University a second $5 million dollar grant to fund Phase II of collaborative smart grid research. The grant will help researchers build on success of the program over the past five years, which resulted in publication of 450 peer-reviewed papers. The award through the NSF’s Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) seeks to strengthen and improve the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of the electric energy grid by addressing infrastructure challenges, security issues and working to create a highly trained and flexible workforce to support the future of the industry.
An engineer working for a research company in Socorro, N.M. travels more than 200 miles every Saturday to attend English as a Second Language courses at El Paso Community College.
