The Research and Economic Development Division (R&ED) encourages research throughout New Mexico Tech by encouraging interdisciplinary and collaborative work between faculty, students, and other universities and research entities. R&ED provides financial support, professional and technical expertise, and special services and facilities to assist researchers at New Mexico Tech. 

R&ED is Tech’s central link for information about potential funding sources and program guidelines for sponsoring agencies. Other R&ED services include a machine shop equipped for specialized research projects, an instrument and supply room that focuses on the distinct needs of researchers, a corporation equipment and maintenance yard, and Tech’s hazardous waste and safety office. These groups and the administrative office staff, are available to assist researchers, as well as the entire Tech community.

R&ED further serves as a point of contact for economic development. R&ED contributes to New Mexico’s growth in the area of technology by cooperating with industry and governmental agencies to move new ideas and discoveries from the academic laboratory into the marketplace.
