SOCORRO,N.M., May 12, 2007 - In commencement ceremonies at New Mexico Tech, 317 people received 331 degrees, and several top award winners were named. Nathan Goulding

The university's top award, the Brown Award, was presented to Nathan Goulding (photo, right), a graduate in computer science and electrical engineering. Nathan, a graduate of Albuquerque'ss La Cueva High School, is the son of Robert and Barbara Goulding of Albuquerque.

When something needed to get done, Nathan was the guy in the department who got it done, and apparently without effort, and always with a smile on his face. He has volunteered for events such as Science Fair, Engineering Weekend, the Computer Boot Camp Program, and giving tours to prospective students. Within the Socorro community, he has also volunteered at the Socorro Puerto Seguro homeless shelter.

Within the EE department, Nathan has supported Dr. Wedeward's electric power system modeling research for ICASA and has provided data analysis for Dr. Thomas in the lightning research area. Both his senior design project and summer work that he carried out at Los Alamos National Laboratory have resulted in conference presentations for Nathan. He has also been a peer facilitator and a tutor.

In his spare time, Nathan has been the President of Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society, and the chair of the student chapter of IEEE. He has been honored as a New Mexico Tech scholar and a Macey Scholarship recipient.
