HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5 r 2010 J' NMSU's aerospace engineeri lg program to launch graduate program,in the fall Submitted by NMSUILas Cruces, NM New Mexico" State University's fledgling, but rap- idly growing aerospace engineer- ing program, gained approval in December to begin offering master's and doctoral degrees. The graduate program will accept LHS volleyball, football awards February 4 Lordsburg High School will host the 2009 Volleyball and Foot- ball Athletic Awards on Thursday, February 4, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at the LHS Cafetorium. The awards program will honor the student- athlete who participated in vol- leyball and football this past sea- son. Team awards, all-district awards, and certificates for letter- ing and participation will be pre- sented. The public is invited to attend. its first students in fall 2010. On Dec! 15, the New Mexico State Board of Finance awarded final approval for the program to move aheadi successfully closing a thre.e-year, approval process. After spending 2007 drafting and perfecting a proposal for the advanced degree program, Tom Burton, mechanical and aero- space engineering department head, presented it to university officials. In 2008, the Board of Regents approved the proposal, thanks in pa;t to the rapid suc- cess of th undergraduate pro- gram, whigh was approved in 2003 and began in 2006. This year more than 60 en- tering freshmen declared them, selves aerospace engineering majors - the largest year-to-year increase in the program's short history. Another 60 are expected in the fall, 'and an external study calls for a $1 million increase in the program to support students and hire S'ix full-time faculty ' members. The program employs two full-time faculty members at present, with two more projected to start in the fall. "This is an opportune time to introduce a graduate program in aerospace at NMSU," said In- terim College of Engineering Dean Kenneth R. White. "We have many strong relationships with the aerospace industry, NASA, White Sands Missile Range and the developing Space- port America, where our research and students play an important role." While the undergraduate program needed approval only through university channels, graduate programs must get the green light at the state level, through an extensive and detailed nine-step process that begins with the department head and academic dean and culminates, if successful, with the State Board of Finance for approval. On the state level the approval process for graduate programs requires an extensive external approval pro- cess through various bodies in- cluding the New Mexico Gradu- ate Deans Council, the Academic Council, the New Mexico Higher Education Department, the New Mexico Higher Education Re- view Board and the State Board of Finance.
