SOCORRO, N.M., June 19, 2003 -- Tektronix, Inc., one of largest test and measurement companies in the world, recently donated the equivalent of $30,600 to New Mexico Tech by providing the state-supported research university with a 40 percent discount off the regular purchase price of one of the company's top-end, high-performance oscilloscope and software packages.

Tektronix is a major testing, measurement, and monitoring company headquartered in Beaverton, Ore.

"New Mexico Tech gratefully acknowledges Tektronix's generous support in the form of this in-kind gift," says Steve Bobinsky, director of advancement at New Mexico Tech. "This donation will go a long way in stretching our research dollars, particularly in the work being done by our atmospheric physics researchers, who will end up using this oscilloscope most often."
