Welcome to NMSU Albuquerque
Welcome to New Mexico State University Albuquerque Center! As New Mexico's land grant university, we serve the state's educational needs through quality education programs and outreach. The Albuquerque Center provides meeting, classroom, and office space at a location more convenient to New Mexico's northern population centers. The Centerís convenient location also provides outreach for recruiting, student orientation, alumni events, meetings, and conferences. The Center serves a non-traditional student population with degree programs otherwise unavailable in the area; further, we seek to serve the need for additional degree completion programs that will complement associate degree and certificate programs at regional community colleges.
We have offices for academic programs and faculty to expand current programs, develop new ones, offer critical services to students, and welcome other agencies to our space. This helps us build awareness that NMSU is serving the Albuquerque area.
Degree programs at the Albuquerque Center satisfy a demand otherwise unmet in central and northern New Mexico. Technology based or fully online programs are available from NMSUís Las Cruces campus with academic advising and other support services offered at the Albuquerque Center.
- Master of Social Work (MSW). The MSW is an advanced generalist program leading to social work in multiple practice settings with Southwest populations. The College of Health and Social Services initiated this program in 2001.
- Family and Child Welfare Training Project. The Title IV-E Project at New Mexico State University is a join partnership between the New Mexico Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD) and the NMSU School of Social Work. †This partnership is funded with federal monies available through the Title IV-E Child Welfare Training Program of the Social Security Act. The Family and Child Welfare Training Project serves to both increase the number of social work graduates who seek employment in CYFD and to provide training for existing CYFD staff. The School of Social Work is proud of this partnership with CYFD. The Family and Child Welfare Training Project is an excellent example of how programs of professional education can serve to reinforce, strengthen and promote the work of vital state agencies dedicated to the protection and advancement of children and their families. †In partnership with CYFD, the School of Social Work provides skill based child welfare training, as defined and permitted by the Title IV-E regulations, plus supervisory training to approximately 1200 participants each fiscal year.
- Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET). New Mexico State University and Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) have joined forces allowing CNM students to earn a bachelor's degree in engineering technology beginning fall 2013. While most classes will be offered online, lectures and labs to compliment those courses will be offered at the Albuquerque Center. CNM classes in the Advanced Systems Technology Program will transfer and apply to freshman and sophomore year classes at NMSU. NMSU has the only ABET accredited engineering technology program in New Mexico. The CNM associate degree counts directly toward meeting the requirements of the bachelor's degree program at NMSU.

Technology Based programs:
- Master of Public Health (MPH). Also from the College of Health and Social Services, the online MPH began in 2008 and is in high demand due to its delivery method; this is the only online program of its kind in the state.
- Educational Leadership Doctoral Program. Hybrid programs like this one are typically designed for working professionals. This program meets at the Albuquerque Center once per semester.
Some services that we offer at NMSU main campus are also offered at the Albuquerque Center. These services are crucial for our students (present and future) and can help us build a thriving alumnus in the Albuquerque area. These offices include Undergraduate Admissions, Counseling Services, Student Accessibility Services, Veterans Program, University Communications, Technical Support and Albuquerque Center Administrative Staff, and New Mexico Department of Agriculture.
We strive to support our Albuquerque Center student population in the same manner they would be on main campus. The resources for students and faculty are consistent. In addition to academic and meeting space, the Center also provides support through:
