Why Engineering and Applied Science
UW Engineering and You:
UW Engineering and the World:
Results of a recent graduating senior survey indicate:
Over the last five years, 82.6% of UW’s College of Engineering and Applied Science seniors pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam on their first try. This compares to only about 75.2% of similar engineering majors nationwide.
During the Spring 2012 semester, 15% of the undergraduate students in engineering were female.
Continuing UW engineering students and high school seniors are offered over 375 scholarships each year. Most engineering scholarships are given to reward academic excellence.
Corporations, alumni, and friends of the College of Engineering and Applied Science fund most of the engineering scholarships.
Members of the faculty have written engineering textbooks that are used all over the world.
Wyoming was the first state to require engineers to be registered, and Charles Bellamy became the first registered professional engineer in August of 1907. Three of his descendants are in the College’s Hall of Fame.
Nationwide there are only 17 accredited nationwide programs in Architectural Engineering.
With very rare exceptions, the College of Engineering and Applied Science courses are taught entirely by regular faculty or practicing professionals, with graduate students assisting in the labs.
With more than 200 recognized student organizations, UW offers a wide range of opportunities to fit your interests and needs. The College has many RSO’s to choose from in each of the disciplines. Visit www.eng.uwyo.edu/societies to learn more.
The International Engineering Club along with Engineers Without Borders-Wyoming (EWB-WYO) is designed to facilitate those students interested in study abroad, international internships, or international service.
Two UW dormitory floors with a computing laboratory house approximately 100 students and are designated for engineering students only.
Our students obtain an excellent background in engineering sciences, combined with significant hands-on laboratory and design experiences.
The small size of the College and excellent student/faculty ratio allows excellent opportunity for undergraduate involvement in research.
UW is surrounded by excellent outdoor recreation opportunities including hiking, skiing, fishing, climbing, biking, and kayaking.
Wireless access to the internet is available in all student areas in the Engineering building.
Students are actively involved in student organizations such as SPE (Society of Petroleum Engineers), AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers), TBP (Tau Beta Pi), and SWE (Society of Women Engineers)
The College has many notable alumni:
