Unique about the NMSU BSCHE curriculum is the manner in which some content is spread across the curriculum rather than taught in a single course.  Students receive hands-on lab experience every semester of their studies.

CHMEs are finding employment in diverse employment with starting salaries exceeding $100,000/year for some industries.  You’ll find this website answers all your questions, whether your a current student or are considering joining la familia.  If you cannot find what you seek, ask.


This video was created by CHME Students Ambassadors to share NMSU CHME with you.

The BSCHE at NMSU is accredited by the  Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
