The Student Research Symposium's Mission Statement:

The New Mexico Tech Student Research Symposium is a campus-wide co-curricular event open to all New Mexico Tech students, organized by faculty, students, administrators, and staff.

Our mission is to:

Provide a forum for students to voluntarily share knowledge with their peers, faculty, community, guests, and reviewers through oral or poster presentations and abstracts of their research/design projects.

Encourage students to develop professional oral presentation, writing, and document design skills to communicate their research/design to a multi-disciplinary audience.
