A Call to Excellence: UW Tier-1 Engineering Initiative
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. 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.
How the Tier-1 Initiative will enhance engineering and applied science teaching and research at the University of Wyoming.
UW Office of Research and Economic Development Launches Science Blog for Public
Interested in hearing about the adventures of a University of Wyoming plant sciences' graduate student who spends her summer in the field studying cheatgrass? Want to learn how on-screen visuals sway opinions during political campaigns? Want to travel the world with UW's King Air research aircraft as it investigates phenomena such as cloud formation or lake-effect snow?
A new University of Wyoming research blog at http://research.uwyo.edu/ is designed to bridge the gap between what UW faculty and students do in their labs -- indoors and out -- and what the public understands about the university’s research efforts. [More]
Energy Innovation Center
Shell 3-D CAVE | Laboratories | Encana Auditorium | Reserve Rooms | Tours
The University of Wyoming’s Energy Innovation Center (EIC) opened in January 2013 to support the University of Wyoming (UW) and the School of Energy Resources (SER) in achieving the mission of positioning Wyoming as a global leader in energy education, research and outreach. This state-of-the-art research and collaboration facility, located on the northwest corner of UW’s Laramie campus, includes 27,300 net square feet of highly technical research space, as well as office, classroom, and meeting space. Approximately 12,500 square feet of the EIC is designated for six rapidly reconfigurable, ultramodern laboratory spaces that will play a key role in advancing SER’s strategic areas of concentration.
