A Loss to the College of Engineering

A Loss to the College of Engineering



The College of Engineering recently lost one of its own community members. Dr. Hong Huang, electrical and computer engineering associate professor, recently passed away unexpectedly.  He has been part of the NMSU faculty for 17 years with research interests in wireless, sensor and optical networks.

He is survived by his wife, Mei Shi, and daughter, Kaixi. Please join me in keeping his family in your thoughts and prayers. 

A GoFundMe site has been established to support the family:

A memorial service for Dr. Huang will be held Saturday, February 1, at 10 am in the Event Center at 522 E Idaho Ave. Friends and colleagues are invited to attend.  If anyone would like to speak, please contact Dr. Ruinian Jiang,, 646-2236.
