The CEAS has been supported by Rocky Mountain Power since 1991.

The College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) Senior Design Symposium will once again be supported financially by the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation.
The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation (RMPF), the philanthropic arm of Rocky Mountain Power utility company, has generously pledged $5,000 for the event at the University of Wyoming. In 2016, the foundation awarded more than $1.2 million to local nonprofit organizations. The CEAS has been supported by Rocky Mountain Power since 1991.
The annual design symposium, hosted every December, allows seniors in the CEAS to display their research and design projects for a panel of judges. The projects encompass areas of education and research in the CEAS including chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering and petroleum engineering.
“The college is so grateful for the continued support of our Senior Design Symposium by the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation,” CEAS Associate Dean Steve Barrett says. “The symposium provides students the opportunity to present their capstone design work to faculty, staff, family, and fellow students. It is the culmination of their entire undergraduate program.”
