The New Mexico State University College of Engineering was ranked among the top ten in the nation by Hispanic Business magazine.  The college earned ninth place on the list of 2008 Best Engineering Schools in the magazine’s annual review of top graduate schools for Hispanics.

The September issue of Hispanic Business magazine will feature the 2008 Best Schools for Hispanics, an annual list of graduate programs across the U.S. that embody diversity on campus. Top universities in business, medicine, law and engineering were qualified for inclusion through five distinct variables that illustrate their commitment to diversity measures towards Hispanics. The schools are rated on Hispanic enrollment, faculty, student services, retention rate and reputation.
