The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology—better known as New Mexico Tech—is a renowned institution dedicated to research, education, and innovation in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

“Best College in New Mexico”

According to College Factual, New Mexico Tech “ranks among the nation’s elite universities in academic value and quality of education.” And it’s no wonder: at NMT, 99% of the full-time faculty have doctoral degrees, and it boasts a 12:1 ratio of students to faculty. Their academic programs include associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees in many STEM fields, giving science-focused students an education that rivals that of other well-known colleges and universities.

The quality of NMT’s programs and its commitment to excellence in every area is reflected in its rankings. In’s 2022-23 rankings, NMT was named the top public university in New Mexico and the best college in New Mexico. Not to mention, it was acknowledged in those same rankings as the College with Best Academics and Best Value College.

The website College Consensus has also praised New Mexico Tech’s students: “New Mexico Tech undergraduates are often as well-prepared for professional scientific careers as master’s graduates at other institutions, and are highly qualified for graduate education at prestigious universities. From astrophysics to petroleum recovery, NMT students are at the center of research innovation.”

However, NMT also lets their students go beyond STEM. With additional course offerings like music, fine arts, poetry and creative writing, golf, martial arts, Celtic dance, yoga, and more, this institute provides a well-rounded education to everyone who walks through its doors.

NMT’s Mission: Education, Research, Service Through STEM

Research, education, and service make up the heart of NMT’s mission. Their deeply dedicated faculty, diverse student body, and rigorous programs put them at the forefront of solving today’s real-world problems, and prepare them to tackle the future as well. They create opportunities for success both within the university and throughout New Mexico and beyond.

The institution’s core values commit them to integrity, creativity, research, excellence, and lifelong learning, among many more. At NMT, students will build a foundation that will propel them forward for the rest of their lives, both personally and professionally.
