Undergraduate Research

Nearly all New Mexico Tech undergraduate students finish their degrees with some campus research experience. Professors in each department hire students to work on research projects. In addition to paid work, students engage in senior projects that are often sponsored by industry groups.

Unlike many universities that reserve research work for graduate students, New Mexico Tech specifically aims to give undergraduates hands-on experience solving real-world problems. Each department manages state-of-the-art laboratories that have student workers.
