Welcome from the Department Head

Welcome to the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. We are housed in the College of Engineering at NMSU, which is DepHead ranked 10th in the nation for total research and development expenditures in engineering-related projects by the National Science Foundation. In addition, the College of Engineering is ranked 62nd in the nation by U.S. News & World Report’s annual evaluation of American graduate school programs—up from last year’s ranking of 69th.

The Klipsch School prepares students for challenging careers where they can apply a broad spectrum of knowledge in electronics and computing to solve real-world problems that help improve our lifestyles, create wealth, and discover new technologies. Our graduates can be found in private industry, government service, and research laboratories throughout the United States and in many other countries. The Klipsch School currently offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering, with specialties ranging from computers to optics!

Our extensive summer internship and semester co-op programs help prepare students for entering the workforce. Our state-of-the-art research trains graduate students to face the theoretical and technical challenges of tomorrow. Our department is large enough to give students the experiences that will be found in many other research universities, yet small enough to have close interaction with faculty and peers.

We would love to have you visit our campus to learn more about our programs. Please contact us to schedule a visit.
