About Us


The School of Energy Resources (SER) at the University of Wyoming (UW) was created in 2006 to enhance the university's energy-related education, research and outreach. SER directs and integrates cutting edge energy research and academic programs at UW and bridges academics and industry through targeted outreach programs. 


Message from Our Executive Director

The School of Energy Resources (SER) at the University of Wyoming collaborates with stakeholders at the state, national, and international levels to advance energy technologies and policies to grow and support Wyoming’s robust energy sector. SER’s focus is energy-driven economic development for the state of Wyoming. This singular objective determines how we allocate our resources and which projects we undertake.

The mission of the school is to provide a mechanism to achieve excellence in energy academics, outreach and research. SER’s academic programs strive to prepare students for work in the state’s energy industry. SER's outreach program furthers engagement with stakeholders, including those from industry, which can help SER to understand what those employers need and continually evaluate how to best prepare today’s students; SER’s outreach program also informs our research priorities. SER's research programs focus on maximizing energy production, minimizing environmental footprint and leading on technology innovation, always to benefit the state. 

Our multidisciplinary approach and unique structure allow for contributions from experts across UW. SER has eleven faculty members across the departments of Economics and Finance, Mathematics, Chemical Engineering, Geology and Geophysics, Chemistry, Petroleum Engineering, and the College of Law.

While SER’s specific research programs and focus can and should evolve over time to best meet the state’s needs, the underlying driver of benefiting the state is unwavering.
