Despite the name, New Mexico Tech's real value is in it's people. There are incredibly talented professors in several fields (and just about all of them are nice, too!) I highly recommend taking a look at the interests of current faculty here if you plan to pursue a graduate degree.

The MST program is the best graduate program I have found. The professors are great and create wonderful classes that are engaging. Academic adviser George Becker is great at helping students get scholarship money.

NMT is a small school which comes with a number of pros and cons. Teachers are all highly invested in students and are more than willing to help with research and classes, but there are very limited class options available each semester.

NMT is a small technical school. Unlike large universities, funding for basic things, such as computers and printers, are more limited than at larger, wealthier schools. While the quality of teaching is generally high, the breadth of courses offered is relatively narrow. Although graduate student stipends (excluding starting TA salaries, which are much lower than research positions) are typically sufficient to cover housing and food costs, NMT does not provide a tuition waiver. Therefore, tuition payments are deducted from paychecks (and international students cannot benefit from education expense deductions on their taxes). Furthermore, NMT does not provided subsidized health or dental insurance for graduate students. The lack of unsubsidized tuition/health insurance decreases the affordability of living in Socorro, NM.
