International scholars trek to NMSU to work with engineering professor

For the past two years, scholars have traveled from across the globe to work with a micromechanics group at New Mexico State University.

Igor Sevostianov, mechanical engineering professor in NMSU?s College of Engineering, is leading the micromechanics group that currently hosts four international scholars. The visitors are Andrea Sorzia from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in Italy, Stanislav Krasnitsky from St. Petersburg Technical University in Russia, Omid Noori from Shahid Beheshti University in Iran and Fengjuan Chen from the University of Lorraine in France.

Typically, the visiting scholars spend from six months to a year at NMSU. Sevostianov started welcoming visiting scholars to NMSU in 2014 after he organized a summer school on micromechanics for graduate students and young researchers in Europe. A portion of the attendees were recipients of a large European Union grant, which helps fund their stay in Las Cruces.

NMSU?s Doņa Ana County Cooperative Extension Service gets new home

The Doņa Ana County Cooperative Extension Service office is moving to the New Mexico Department of Health Office at 1170 N. Solano Drive, Suite M.

This change of location brings county extension programs into a Doņa Ana County building, rather than a leased space. The Cooperative Extension Service has a long history of collaborating with many programs within the Department of Health building.
