Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

- New Mexico State University is the home of the International Environmental Design Contest, a government and industry sponsored contest in which student teams solve environmental problems of interest to government and industry.
- Aerospace Engineering students participate in the Design Build Fly (DBR) competition in payload design projects associated with launches at nearby Spaceport America; in the design of experimental facilities for studies in aeroelasticity and flutter; in the design of systems that are tested on the Vomit Comet, autonomous blimp projects, development of autonomous helicopter G&C systems, and design of aerospace test platforms.
- Civil Engineering students are required to design a hydraulic system (may include a dam and canals), landfill, steel or concrete bridge or building, or water treatment plant. Civil Engineering students participate in the concrete canoe and steel bridge building contests. The student canoe designs have qualified for national competition.
- Chemical Engineering students are required to take a two semester design sequence. In the fall semester, the students take a 4-credit design course covering design principles with individual and group design projects. In the spring semester, Chemical Engineering students take a 2-credit capstone design course and are required to participate in the AICHE national student design competition and individually design a chemical process to meet the requirements of a stated task.
- Students in the Klipsch School of Electrical & Computer Engineering are required to complete a six hour capstone design project over two semesters during their senior year. The projects are initiated by a proposal with some sponsorship from private industry or funded research projects. The projects must include teams of at least three students and require three or more subdisciplines from Electrical & Computer Engineering. The team may include members from other Engineering disciplines.
- Industrial Engineering students participate in an integrated senior design project with Mechanical Engineering and technical writing students where they work with an industry client on a current design issue. Facilities design and simulation classes also require a industry design project.
- Mechanical Engineering (ME) students are required to take two Capstone Design courses where they work with industry to design real-world mechanical and thermal systems. The design course is multidisciplinary and students work in teams on design projects. Design is integrated into the ME curriculum starting from the freshman year to the senior year. ME students participate in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) design contest at the regional and national level. Most ME design projects have industrial sponsors such as Boeing, GM, Raytheon, as well as many of the local industries in southern New Mexico. Many students from ME and other engineering departments participate in multidisciplinary projects through the M-TEC, Advanced Manufacturing Center. Each year ME students and Engineering Technology students work in teams on the Mini-Baja vehicle student design and competition which is sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
- Computer Science students are required to complete a semester long capstone project; in such project they work in teams to perform the complete cycle of software design and development, addressing a problem assigned by an outside "customer." The project is supervised by one faculty member and it includes written reports and open presentations.
- Other design contests include C-9 (KC135) Student Microgravity Flight competition, Associated Schools of Construction Regional Bidding competition, and NASA University Student Launch competition.

The residence decision for student under 18 is based upon the legal residence of the parents or legal guardian. In the event that a non‐custodial parent is a legal resident of New Mexico, the minor student will be classified as a resident.

To prove New Mexico residency a student must have evidence of any two of the following:
- If you are financially dependent, a copy of the parents’ or guardians’ previous year income tax information showing you as a dependent and the parents’ address as New Mexico;
- A New Mexico high school transcript issued in the past year confirming attendance at a NM public or private high school within the past 12 months;
- A transcript from an online high school showing a New Mexico address confirming attendance within the last 12 months;
- A New Mexico driver’s license or ID card with an original date of issue or a renewal date issued prior to the first day of the term or semester;
- Proof of payment of New Mexico state income tax for the previous year;
- Evidence of employment within the state of New Mexico;
- New Mexico vehicle registration;
- Voter registration in New Mexico;
- Proof of residential property ownership in New Mexico;
- A rental agreement within New Mexico;
- Utility bills showing the applicant name and a New Mexico address;
- Other evidence which would reasonably support the individual’s intent to establish and maintain New Mexico residency.

Waivers are available if certain conditions can be met and evidence provided.

REQUIREMENTS TO ESTABLISH NEW MEXICO RESIDENCY:
- Twelve (12) month durational requirement. A person must physically reside in New Mexico for the twelve (12) consecutive months immediately preceding the term for which the resident classification is requested.
- Financial independence requirement. Only persons who are financially independent may establish residency apart from parents or guardians.
- Written declaration of intent requirement. The student or person must sign a written declaration of intent to relinquish residency in any other state and to establish it in New Mexico.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students from other colleges or universities may be accepted for undergraduate studies if they have completed at least 36 college credit hours with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and are eligible to return to their previous college or university. Students who have earned 35 or fewer college credits must fulfill the freshman admission requirements and have at least a 2.75 overall grade point average in college.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Students seeking admission to graduate student status at New Mexico State University (NMSU) must hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree or an advanced degree from an accredited institution. The program of preparation should be substantially equivalent in the distribution of academic subject matter to the requirements for a comparable degree at NMSU. Formal application with the Graduate School is required of all prospective students, including graduates of NMSU, who seek admission to a graduate program. An applicant must have a minimum grade-point average of 3.0. Official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate institutions must be sent directly to the Graduate School. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test is required for all applicants. Test scores must be sent to the Graduate School.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

It is required that all prospective students apply to both the Graduate School and the Department/Program of your choice. Check with the Department/Program you are applying to for their deadlines and for other application materials required (e.g. statement of purpose, psychometric scores).

Note: The Graduate School Application Packet should be received at least 30 days before the Department deadline and 30 days before classes begin..

Send all departmental materials to the Department/Program.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In addition to meeting the Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering and Engineering Department requirements, international students must have minimum TOEFL 79 IBT; 550 PBT or 6.5 IELTS. Contact The International Student and Scholar Services Office for conditional admission options:
Web Page - https://isss.nmsu.edu
Email - isss@nmsu.edu
Phone - (575) 646-2834

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Residency Requirements

A person's residency classification for tuition purposes shall be determined at time of admission and must be completed by the census date of that first enrollment at New Mexico State University. Persons Under the age of 18 are considered minors under the law. A minor's residence is presumed to be the same as his/her parents' or legal guardian's. The residence decision for student under 18 is based upon the legal residence of the parents or legal guardian. In the event that a non‐custodial parent is a legal resident of New Mexico, the minor student will be classified as a resident.

To prove New Mexico residency a student must have evidence of any two of the following:
- If you are financially dependent, a copy of the parents’ or guardians’ previous year income tax information showing you as a dependent and the parents’ address as New Mexico;
- A New Mexico high school transcript issued in the past year confirming attendance at a NM public or private high school within the past 12 months;
- A transcript from an online high school showing a New Mexico address confirming attendance within the last 12 months;
- A New Mexico driver’s license or ID card with an original date of issue or a renewal date issued prior to the first day of the term or semester;
- Proof of payment of New Mexico state income tax for the previous year;
- Evidence of employment within the state of New Mexico;
- New Mexico vehicle registration;
- Voter registration in New Mexico;
- Proof of residential property ownership in New Mexico;
- A rental agreement within New Mexico;
- Utility bills showing the applicant name and a New Mexico address;
- Other evidence which would reasonably support the individual’s intent to establish and maintain New Mexico residency.

Waivers are available if certain conditions can be met and evidence provided.

REQUIREMENTS TO ESTABLISH NEW MEXICO RESIDENCY:
- Twelve (12) month durational requirement. A person must physically reside in New Mexico for the twelve (12) consecutive months immediately preceding the term for which the resident classification is requested.
- Financial independence requirement. Only persons who are financially independent may establish residency apart from parents or guardians.
- Written declaration of intent requirement. The student or person must sign a written declaration of intent to relinquish residency in any other state and to establish it in New Mexico.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Same as Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

- Students completing coursework in CELP. Satisfactory completion requires a final grade of no less than 70% in all courses. Visit http://celp.nmsu.edu/ for full details.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as Admission to the Engineering Technology Department

Residency Requirements

A person's residency classification for tuition purposes shall be determined at time of admission and must be completed by the census date of that first enrollment at New Mexico State University. Persons Under the age of 18 are considered minors under the law. A minor's residence is presumed to be the same as his/her parents' or legal guardian's. The residence decision for student under 18 is based upon the legal residence of the parents or legal guardian. In the event that a non‐custodial parent is a legal resident of New Mexico, the minor student will be classified as a resident.

To prove New Mexico residency a student must have evidence of any two of the following:
- If you are financially dependent, a copy of the parents’ or guardians’ previous year income tax information showing you as a dependent and the parents’ address as New Mexico;
- A New Mexico high school transcript issued in the past year confirming attendance at a NM public or private high school within the past 12 months;
- A transcript from an online high school showing a New Mexico address confirming attendance within the last 12 months;
- A New Mexico driver’s license or ID card with an original date of issue or a renewal date issued prior to the first day of the term or semester;
- Proof of payment of New Mexico state income tax for the previous year;
- Evidence of employment within the state of New Mexico;
- New Mexico vehicle registration;
- Voter registration in New Mexico;
- Proof of residential property ownership in New Mexico;
- A rental agreement within New Mexico;
- Utility bills showing the applicant name and a New Mexico address;
- Other evidence which would reasonably support the individual’s intent to establish and maintain New Mexico residency.

Waivers are available if certain conditions can be met and evidence provided.

REQUIREMENTS TO ESTABLISH NEW MEXICO RESIDENCY:
- Twelve (12) month durational requirement. A person must physically reside in New Mexico for the twelve (12) consecutive months immediately preceding the term for which the resident classification is requested.
- Financial independence requirement. Only persons who are financially independent may establish residency apart from parents or guardians.
- Written declaration of intent requirement. The student or person must sign a written declaration of intent to relinquish residency in any other state and to establish it in New Mexico.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students from other colleges or universities may be accepted for undergraduate studies if they have completed at least 36 college credit hours with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and are eligible to return to their previous college or university. Students who have earned 35 or fewer college credits must fulfill the freshman admission requirements and have at least a 2.75 overall grade point average in college.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students:
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students:
