“The direct interaction with students and faculty of the Computer Science Department was one of the primary reasons we have joined the Industrial Affiliates Program,” said Shawn Mills, president, Green House Data. “The program fosters the strengthening of the relationship between Green House Data and the University and speaks to the influence UW has on the technology industry in Wyoming.”
The Department of Computer Science’s Industrial Affiliates Program provides a link between industrial and business partners with potential employees and faculty members.

Collectively, the mutual needs of business, industry, and academia are supported.
“We are very proud to be partnered with Green House,” said James Caldwell, head of the Computer Science Department. “Green House Data is a Silicon Valley style success story right here in Wyoming. They’re able to offer exactly the kind of internships and jobs we hope to find for our students. Ten years ago most of our graduates ended up going down to the Front Range for work. More and more, with companies like Green House Data, they can pursue outstanding high-tech careers right here at home in Wyoming.”
