Each summer for the past 26 years, high school juniors from around the country arrive at the University of Wyoming to learn all about engineering from UW’s professors and graduate students. This year’s Summer Engineering Program takes place June 22–28, 2014. The students live on campus, eat at the cafeteria and choose from a variety of classes.

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!
