New Mexico State University

New Mexico State University

In 1960, New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts became New Mexico State University. Since that time, while sustaining excellence in those programs traditionally associated with land-grant institutions, New Mexico State has become a comprehensive doctoral level university offering a wide variety of programs.

New York University

Invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship. It is New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering's fundamental way of approaching academics and research by arming faculty and students with the tools and resources to turn their inspiration into applications, products, and services that take flight towards the market.

To think like an inventor, you have to at times put down the text book and get your hands dirty. Project-based coursework confronts students with problems that don’t have easy solutions, in fact, they often have many. By figuring out the best solution, students learn to push their thinking, refine their designs, and develop a taste for invention and innovation.

Some have called what’s going on in the halls of the NYU School of Engineering a “research renaissance,” a return to the spirited, rigorous scientific exploration that contributed to such life-altering advancements as the mass production of penicillin, the laser, and cell phone technology. And it’s not just faculty and PhD candidates breaking new ground. Initiatives like the Annual Undergraduate Summer Research Program give undergraduates invaluable, hands-on research experience.
