CU-Boulder engineering student John Shelton doesn't work with the Los Alamos National Laboratory, but he said he and other engineering students favor a proposed CU-Los Alamos partnership.

“Most of us consider this a boon, something that will help us when we graduate,” Shelton said about projected internships, jobs and relationships that likely would be generated at “LANL.”

Shelton, a junior, is among what one student leader called a “vast majority” of students in physics and engineering who support CU's joining an academic network of 19 prominent universities to conduct research at LANL. It's a supporting project in a bid led by the University of Texas and defense contractor Lockheed Martin to operate the New Mexico-based lab.

Well, if it is possible to get motivated, talented engineering and science students in here, I don't see what's not to like. I wish this partnership the best of luck.

The students seemed intelligent and well-spoken, and I think they would be a lot of fun to have up here.

I hope we can get some of the computer types!
