TTU hosts Mexican delegation

Texas Tech University recently hosted a delegation from the State of Tamaulipas, Mexico. Just across the border from Laredo, the State of Tamaulipas is known for its manufacturing, agriculture, and trade industries. Currently, the state is one of the largest producers of wind energy in Mexico and will soon feature the largest wind park in Latin America. During their visit to TTU, the delegation toured TTU's National Wind Institute research facility, the College of Engineering, CASNR, the Quaker Agricultural Farm, and the International Cultural Center (Office of International Affairs). The intent of the visit was to cultivate a collaboration between TTU and the State of Tamaulipas to offer degree programs. The Secretary of Education, Dr. Hector Salazar signed a letter of intent during his visit with TTU President Schovanec.
