Mission Statement

The mission of the New Mexico Tech Electrical Engineering Department is two-fold: (1) to develop and maintain a program of excellence in teaching which ensures that our graduates have technical knowledge and professional skills they need to become effective engineers in the rapidly-changing technical environment of today's society, so that these graduates will contribute to the growth and development of New Mexico and our nation, and (2) to develop and maintain state-of-the-art research programs which are responsive to the needs of industry and government, which provide excellent educational opportunities for students, and which provide an environment for intellectual growth and excitement.

Program Objectives

Program Educational Objectives for Undergraduate Program in Electrical Engineering

The faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering strives to continuously improve the undergraduate program in electrical engineering. The educational objectives reflect the needs of, and have been reviewed by, among others, the Advisory Board and faculty. Several years after graduation it is expected that the program's graduates will be:

  • recognized leaders in electrical engineering-related fields or other career paths, in the public and private sector;
  • valued leaders and participants in diverse teams who boldly discover and apply new knowledge and engineering practices;
  • adaptive learners who continue to grow professionally in their organizations, or by earning post-graduate degrees.
