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.
UW Office of Research and Economic Development Launches Science Blog for PublicInterested 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.
April 2, 2015 — A University of Wyoming researcher directed a study that suggests that, when brains are organized into modules, they are better at learning new information without forgetting prior knowledge.
April 1, 2015 — For more than 38 years, the Beechcraft King Air 200T, the University of Wyoming’s research aircraft, has flown into weather most pilots would rather avoid. For the sake of science, the plane has breached heavy snow and thunderstorms to learn more about how these precipitations occur and act in the atmosphere.
March 9, 2015 — The University of Wyoming broke ground today (Monday) on the $53.5 million High Bay Research Facility, a novel, state-of-the-art facility with flexible laboratory space that will allow UW’s energy programs to achieve distinction in areas of strategic importance to Wyoming and the nation.
December 16, 2014 — The University of Wyoming played a key role in a nearly decade-long study by the state that concluded cloud seeding has some effect, with a 5-15 percent positive impact on snow accumulation shown after the weather modification technique is used.
October 1, 2014 — Three University of Wyoming researchers participated in a study about high winter ozone levels near an oil and gas field in Utah, an analysis that could help inform future monitoring and mitigation strategies for air quality impacts from oil and gas extraction -- and provide broader insight into the response of winter ozone to primary pollutants.
September 11, 2014 — A University of Wyoming professor has received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy for an innovative coal conversion project aimed at producing a synthetic gas that can be used in the production of value-added chemicals.
August 26, 2014 — A University of Wyoming researcher leads a National Science Foundation (NSF) research project funded with a $2.89 million grant to study water sustainability, land-use management and climate in the Panama Canal watershed.
