Welcome to the University of Wyoming’s Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

Along with the low cost of attending UW, the department of Electrical & Computer Engineering provides a rigorous program that allows our students to compete with students at top level institutions.  Students from our program have gone on as graduate students to attend Stanford, Purdue, and Berkeley, just to name a few. 

Our students have careers that cross many boundaries.  Not only do they have opportunities with excellent learning facilities in electrical and computer engineering, such as computer design, gaming, internet, space vehicles, robotics, and biomedicine, but many have become doctors, lawyers, and business executives.  With a degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering at UW you will receive the training needed to succeed in your chosen area, whatever it might be.

Fall 2015 Graduate Students Needed

Graduate Assistantship openings are available fall of 2015 in the College of Engineering & Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Wyoming.  The acquisition of several new research grants has created numerous graduate assistantship openings.  Research areas with openings  include Controls—developing new methods to reliably integrate large quantities of wind energy into system operations through new methods of cooperative control between wind turbines, Power Systems—developing advanced Signal Processing methods for monitoring system reliability using synchrophasor measurements, and a wide variety of additional areas.  Interested students should take a pre-application survey, or here to apply.
