UW Engineering College Launches Honors Program for 2017-2018

April 26, 2017
Engineering students greet friends and family after graduation in spring 2016.
Engineering students will have the opportunity to participate in the Engineering Honors Program beginning in fall 2017 and can earn distinction upon graduation.

The College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) now is accepting students into the Engineering Honors Program for the 2017-18 academic year. The CEAS will serve as the University of Wyoming’s pilot program for college-specific honors programs as the University Honors Program prepares to transition into an Honors College.  

The Engineering Honors Program combines the same opportunities already offered by the University Honors Program with additional coursework in Engineering Honors curriculum, Engineering Honors independent study, Engineering Honors scholarship and Engineering Honors distinction upon graduation. This educational opportunity allows students who study engineering and applied science to delve deeper into their area of interest and receive additional resources to participate in independent research and explore off-campus experiences.  

The new program is open to incoming freshmen, transfer students and current UW CEAS students enrolled in the University Honors Program. More information is available here and students interested in the Engineering Honors program can enroll here.

“The addition of an Engineering Honors Program speaks to the vision of the Tier-1 Engineering Initiative,” CEAS Dean Michael Pishko says. “This program will enhance our ability to educate and mentor our students at the highest level.”
