  • Minority programs with Sandia. This is an agreement with Sandia to increase the number of underrepresented graduate students in the field. The program supports undergraduate engineering students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and minority-serving institutions to enroll as master’s degree students in the UNM School of Engineering. Sandia supports the professional development of the students through an internship where they will also complete research for their thesis work.
