A message from Dean Cameron H.G. Wright

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On Sept. 13, 2019, the University of Wyoming celebrated the grand opening of the new Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB). It was no doubt one of the largest visual milestones of our promise to Wyoming in fulfilling the Tier 1 Engineering Initiative.

My sincere gratitude goes out to the many individuals, teams and partners who were involved in successfully completing this building on time and within original budget parameters. The EERB, like many of our facilities, is an absolute wonder and will bring us into the future. But, our work is not done—it has just begun.

We are excited to celebrate our new facilities along with the interdisciplinary collaboration and opportunities they are creating for the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Our students, faculty and community now have access to one of the most robust makerspace facilities in the nation to support research and classwork. Our upgraded drilling simulator is unrivaled and will prepare the workforce of a vital industry in ways never thought possible.

I have had the pleasure to meet with many of our champions, and I look forward to sharing conversations with those I haven’t met. My dedication to maintain and create new partnerships begins with two very important principles that have been my guiding beacons long before I joined the academic world: successfully perform the mission and take good care of the people. It is not possible to fulfill one without the other.

In the coming months as interim dean, I open my door to your ideas and feedback on how we can go further. Our faculty and staff are keys to attracting students from around the world. With this in mind, we can only achieve our goals by creating a better atmosphere for facilitating improvement. It is time to shine the light on creating communication in all directions, because there is nothing we can’t do when we work together.

On behalf of all students, staff and faculty, I welcome you to visit any of our facilities and offer solutions to some of our most important challenges. I am listening, and so is our campus community. Thank you for this opportunity, and I look forward to serving you in the future.

Cameron H.G. Wright

Mission Statement

The College of Engineering and Applied Science will serve the citizens of Wyoming through engineering and technology-oriented research and educational collaborations. Our research has made significant impact on Wyoming’s economic growth and development and the quality of life of Wyoming citizens.

Our researchers will conduct relevant research and provide practical answers to critical state and national needs. We will partner with industry, communities and academic institutions to solve problems to help improve the quality of life, promote economic development and enhance the educational systems of Wyoming. We will also promote new technology education and investigate problems in energy, water, and related topics. We will serve as a catalyst for collaborations that position Wyoming to be especially competitive for federal and industry funding, and play a major role in strengthening research leadership across the state.

In addition, as an institute of higher education, we work to improve student performance in math, science and technology. Our mission is to produce and transfer the highest quality, relevant engineering and technology-oriented research by leveraging capabilities statewide in order to:
  • Improve economic development and quality of life in Wyoming and the nation
  • Enhance educational systems
  • Support interdisciplinary fundamental and applied research
  • Transfer technology from research and development activities to useful applications
  • Commercialize promising technologies
