Legacy of Sociedad de Ingenieros

I am very pleased that the College of Engineering will once again
hold its 33-year-old graduation tradition in person following two
years of virtual ceremonies due to the COVID epidemic. Our
Sociedad de Ingenierosceremony is among the the most

been involved in their path toward earning their degrees.

At each ceremony, eminente members who have distinguished themselves in the field of

I've become fond of this unique and meaningful ceremony during my tenure at NMSU. I am
looking forward to a live ceremony to cap this spring semester and usher in a new cadre of
engineering graduates to the next exciting phase of their lives.
