"Given the change of course that has happened in the world, we wanted to provide expert opinions on what aspiring graduates can do to start off their careers in an uncertain economic climate. We wanted to know what skills will be more important, where the economy is doing relatively well, and if there will be any lasting effects on the job market."


New Mexico Tech awards minors for your secondary field of study. While the number of credits required for a minor vary from department to department, a minimum of 18 credit hours is required. Students cannot earn a minor with either the Associate of General Studies or Bachelor of General Studies. You must declare a minor and be assigned a minor advisor prior to completing the coursework for the minor.  Formal details for these minors are available in the Mechanical Engineering section of the current NMT Catalog.  The summaries below are for reference, and all students should reference the current catalog for specifics.
