International Programs

Welcome to NMT's International and Exchange Programs

Our mission is to promote New Mexico Tech through the development of relationships with non-immigrant students throughout the world. Our goal is to allow the NMT community to thrive and prosper through the relationships developed with our international students.

The International Programs office is part of the Center for Student Leadership and Engagement and provides educational and personal development to our international students to help them become important and contributing members of the NMT community. We do this through study abroad programs, MOU’s with other universities, campus wide events, social hours and faculty involvement, including:
