NMSU Top for Women Computer Scientists

According to a recent analysis by "The Chronicle of Higher Education," New Mexico State University (NMSU) is 22nd in the nation (among four-year public institutions) to enroll and graduate women in computer science. This is in no small part due to the efforts of Enrico Pontelli, Dean of NMSU’s College of Arts and Sciences and NMSU lead for the NM EPSCoR SMART Grid Center, and his computer science faculty, who have been laying the groundwork for more women in computing since 2006.

In the world of academia, the proof is in the publications, not the pudding – unless, of course, the publication is on pudding.

In the first year of New Mexico's last NSF EPSCoR project, the Energize New Mexico team produced 18 peer-reviewed publications. As time passed, these numbers predictably increased, with 27 in year three and 49 in year five. Now the grant is over, but papers are still being published. Read more...
