Who We Are
The ESS department aims to increase the retention and graduation rates for students in every field within the School of Engineering (SOE). The ESS staff at the University of New Mexico supports students through academic advisement, outreach, recruitment, tutoring, scholarships, and multicultural engineering programs such as: the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program, Native Americans in Science, Technolgy, Engineering and Mathematics (NA-STEM), and the Summer Transportation Institute (STI).
Several science & engineering minority student organizations are also supported by ESS. These include: the Hispanic Engineering and Science Organization, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers.
ESS also provides tutoring services and study groups for individuals in math and higher level engineering courses. These services are provided by undergraduate and graduate students who have taken the courses and can provide new students with first-hand knowledge. Tutoring schedules are posted within the first two weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters.
