The Academy of Civil, Agricultural and Geological Engineering (CAGE) is a combination of the former Civil Engineering (CE) Department Advisory Committee, which was organized in the fall of 1981, and the Academy of Civil Engineering which was organized in 1986. They were formed to serve as multipurpose liaisons between the Department and the Engineering profession. The Academy represents private practice, industry, and government; providing ideas, advice, critical evaluation, guidance, and general support to the CE Department. The Academy is action oriented and aids in developing support for engineering within the University and across the State and Nation.
The Academy purpose, in appreciation of the honor bestowed individually and collectively, will perpetuate:
A. The strength and dedication of Civil, Agricultural, and Geological Engineering through personal and professional example,
B. The recognition of those graduates of the Department who bring honor to Civil, Agricultural, and Geological Engineering as practitioners and as citizens.
C. The encouragement of personal, corporate, foundation, and government gifts and grants of money, equipment and facilities to the New Mexico State University Foundation for the benefit of the CAGE (now CE) Department.
