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.
Undergraduate Engineering Scholars Program
We are seeking outstanding students interested in being mentored in
research and scholarship. The Scholarship will provide $6,000 of annual
funding to help cover the cost of tuition, room and board. The scholarship is merit based and renewable for an additional three years for a total scholarship of $24,000.
