Intel Donates Equipment to UNM School of Engineering

February 17, 2010

intel-donationIntel Corporation recently donated over $1200 worth of power tools and electronic supplies to the Center for Biomedical Engineering at UNM. The equipment will be used to help CBME students and faculty in their research mission to deliver low cost medical diagnostics.

CBME researcher Scott Sibbett, who was involved in distributing the hand tools, says, “Intel’s donation was very generous. A good portion of these tools will be used for many years to come in the research and training of students here at the CBME.”

The CBME relocated to a lab space in the new Centennial Engineering Center in 2006 and many of the faculty are starting new labs.  “These tools are precisely the sort we need to conduct our research and to train students,” adds Sibbett.
