College of Engineering and Applied Science

A Call to Excellence: UW Tier-1 Engineering Initiative

In May 2012, Wyoming Gov. Mead, the Wyoming Legislature and the Wyoming Governor’s Engineering, STEM Integration Task Force articulated a vision to propel the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the University of Wyoming to the realms of excellence in instruction, research and service. UW's leadership, faculty and staff are committed to the vision; and equally important, UW's industry partners have embraced this vision and will help actualize it.

How the Tier-1 Initiative will enhance engineering and applied science teaching and research at the University of Wyoming.

Preparing Students for the 21st Century

The College of Engineering and Applied Science is a nationally recognized institution of academic excellence and world-class research. Student and faculty engagement is a hallmark of the college, helping our students reach their full potential to achieve dynamic and rewarding careers. Through small class sizes, UW engineering students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with real world projects alongside renowned faculty and research scientists.

Unprecedented investments are creating world-class facilities for engineering students and researchers. The College of Engineering and Applied Science combines accessibility and affordability with an experience that prepares our students to be competitive in a global market.
