For Industry

The Office of the VPED is committed to creating strategic alliances that benefit stakeholders on and off-campus. We seek to create a stronger economy by bringing together the assets and talents of NMSU with those of partners. Work with us to learn how NMSU’s world class researchers, state of the art technologies, and extensive professional resources can benefit corporate and industry collaborators.

Strategic Alliances

We are looking for partners to grow an innovation-based economy. Noted by the Carnegie Foundation as an institution with high research activity, NMSU is home to world-class researchers and students pushing the limits in their fields. Our work in a variety of disciplines provides opportunities for companies in related industries to capitalize on the latest research and technology.

While NMSU researchers work across a vast range of disciplines, particular institutional research strengths include Animal and Range Science, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Computer Science, Computer and Electrical Engineering, Energy and Biofuels, Environment and Ecology, Medical and Health Sciences, Plant and Soil Sciences, Space Science and Aerospace, and Water.

Partnering with NMSU offers companies access to emerging technologies and the researchers working to develop them. NMSU can also provide your organization unique opportunities to work directly with faculty and student researchers to develop the innovations and products you need.

We offer a variety of options to accommodate partners’ specific needs. Contact Kathy Hansen at to start the process of creating a strategic alliance with NMSU.
