STEM UP will host a signing event to finalize and celebrate the Engineering Degree Transfer agreement on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 1:30 p.m. in the CNM Main Campus building JS Room 208. Representatives from the UNM Provost's office, College of Engineering and the Associate VP for UNM's Enrollment Management will be on hand to sign the agreement with CNM's VP for Academic Affairs, Dean of Math Scinece and Engineering, and AVP of Enrollment Management. The Engineering Degree Transfer Agreement will provide CNM Engineering A.S. graduates with the information regarding course requirements that will provide for smooth transition into one of the seven possible Bachelors of Science Engineering programs offered at UNM. The Engineering Transfer Articulation Agreement is the second STEM field program signed by both UNM and CNM hosted by the Joint Advisory Council created through STEM UP. It is another step forward toward creating clear pathways and support for students to earn both A.S. degrees at CNM and B.S. degrees at UNM.
STEMP UP is a Hispanic serving Institute (HSI) grant awarded by the department of Education to promote cooperative effort between CNM and UNM to: 1) Increase the number of Hispanic and other low-income students attaining degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and 2) Develop model transfer articulation agreements between two year Hispanic Serving Institutions and four year institutions in such fields
