Undergraduate Curriculum

Advanced technologies often initiate with innovations in new materials, such as in the electronic or aerospace industries. These material innovations rest on a fundamental understanding of how the internal structure of a material influences properties at different length scales, ranging from subatomic, to nano, to micro, and ultimately macro‐scale. The state of the material at these length scales are probed by various characterizing methods, which provide understanding of mechanisms responsible for observed phenomenon. Thereby material problems can be resolved and innovations made that are both efficient and based on solid scientific principles.

The New Mexico Tech undergraduate materials program attempts to provide these foundations in an academic atmosphere that fosters growth and collaboration. With a small class size, students have the opportunity to interact closely with professors and conduct research in laboratories.
