Prospective Students|College of Engineering and Applied Science


A Call to Excellence

In May 2012, Wyoming Gov. Mead, the Wyoming Legislature and the Wyoming Governor’s Engineering, STEM Integration Task Force articulated a vision to propel the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the University of Wyoming to the realms of excellence in instruction, research and service through the UW Tier-1 Engineering Initiative. UW's leadership, faculty and staff are committed to the vision; and equally important, UW's industry partners have embraced this vision and will help actualize it.

As part of the initiative, we are offering merit scholarships through an Undergraduate Engineering Scholars Program. The Scholarship will provide $6,000 of annual funding for a total scholarship of $24,000. Learn more today!

Tier-1 Facilities, Faculty and Degree Options

Unprecedented investments are creating world-class facilities for engineering students and researchers. The UW Tier 1 Engineering Initiative will bring UW to the forefront of schools nationwide.

Student and faculty engagement is a hallmark of the college, helping our students reach their full potential to achieve dynamic and rewarding careers. Through small class sizes and a low student to faculty ratio, our students have the opportunity to work one-on-one with renowned faculty and researchers to engineer global solutions.

The College of Engineering and Applied Science offers several undergraduate bachelor of science degrees that lead to challenging and rewarding careers:

Architectural Engineering 
Chemical Engineering 
Chemical Engineering (petroleum option) 

Civil Engineering 
Computer Engineering
Computer Science 

 Electrical Engineering 
Electrical Engineering (bioengineering option) 

Energy Systems Engineering
Mechanical Engineering 
Petroleum Engineering
Earth System Science

Student Support

The Center for Student Services (CSS) in the College of Engineering and Applied Science helps students develop their full potential by creating a culture of success through active involvement in education and career planning.

A variety of student societies provide our students with opportunities to socialize and be involved in the university and greater community. Our students receive free tutoring from the National Engineering Honor Society and the International Engineering Club. And many students participate in Engineers Without Borders, designed to facilitate those interested in study abroad, international internships or international service.
