NMSU engineering lab receives more Intel computers

Intel Corp. has donated 12 new computers worth more than $28,000 to the New Mexico State University College of Engineering. The computers, in addition to the five Intel previously donated, will provide curriculum and research support to help the college continue upgrading its central computer cluster.

The cluster is open to engineering students when it is not in use by a class. The 733 megahertz Pentium III PCs from Intel will run Windows 2000, Office 2000 and design and programming 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."
