Klipsch School receives equipment grant from Agilent Technologies

The Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Mexico State University was recently awarded an $80,000 equipment grant from Agilent Technologies.

nt will help support the school's microwave and wireless engineering program, and offer students the opportunity to work with material and equipment they have not seen before, said Russell Jedlicka, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering.

With the new funding, the Applied Electromagnetics course will include a lab that all electrical engineering students will use during their studies.

"Agilent really wanted to have their equipment impact hands-on activities," Jedlicka said. "This lab will expose our students to state-of-the-art equipment and give them a better understanding of wireless technology."

Among its giving interests, Agilent Technologies, headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif., offers grants to teaching labs that exhibit a leading edge in their approach to teaching students in the laboratory. The award was part of Agilent's University Philanthropic Equipment Grant program.
