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.
