Intel donates computers for NMSU engineering lab

Intel Corp. has donated five new computers worth more than $13,000 to the New Mexico State University College of Engineering. The new computers, designated for curriculum and research support, will enable the college to begin upgrading its central computer cluster.

The cluster is open to engineering students when it is not in use by a class. The 600 megahertz Pentium III PCS from Intel will run Windows NT, Office 2000, AutoCAD and other computer-aided design software, C++ Visual Studio and other software packages used most often by engineering students. They will have multimedia capabilities and access to the Internet.

"Over the years, Intel has been a great supporter of our engineering programs here at NMSU," said Jay Jordan, dean of the engineering college. "Their help with these computers and many other contributions ensures that our students have experience with the latest technology."
