New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (also known as New Mexico Tech) was founded in 1889 under the name of The New Mexico School of Mines. In 1951, The New Mexico School of Mines underwent a name change and was given its current name, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. The university's mission is "to help students learn creative approaches to addressing complex issues, acknowledge state and national diversity by developing an inclusive learning environment, create and communicate knowledge, and solve technical and scientific problems."
As a public institution of higher education, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology awards associate’s degrees, bachelor's degrees, post graduate certificates, master's degrees and doctoral degrees. For students who are unable to attend in-class learning sessions, New Mexico Tech offers certain master's degrees entirely online.
