Graduate 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 Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering
Major projects include the slope stability of mine rock piles, monitoring and evaluation of highway slopes, and the development of deformation instrumentation for the application to underground and surface rock and soil movements.
New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology researchers work closely with the state highway department, cities and counties to develop new methods to analyze geotechnical problems.
