OverviewGeneral DescriptionGraduate studies are offered at New Mexico Tech in areas of specialization. We strive to pursue practical research projects that are founded on basic science in collaboration with industry. Students are taught advanced laboratory and fields techniques. In addition, analytical and computer skills are enhanced on the graduate level.
Faculty work, for the most part, in teams and often work with faculty and researchers at other Universities and National Laboratories. The sharing of knowledge beings diversity and breadth to our focus on applied research. Hence, our students are prepared to be leaders in industry.
Specialization in Mineral Exploration
Rock mechanics research includes the development of new testing methodology to evaluate the behavior of rock around underground excavations. Environmental control of mine wastes, mine waste characterization remediation. Design of waste-site facilities.
