A message from Carrell Family Dean Cameron H.G. Wright

Welcome to the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Wyoming. If you’re a student, staff, or faculty member, I hope your time with us is filled with inspiring, challenging, and scholarly opportunities to build your future in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematic (STEM) industries. If you’re just looking now at us, or are a long-time supporter, I hope you’ll find our newer, bigger, more comprehensive college an exciting and vibrant place.

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs taught by a dedicated community of academic leaders who believe that interdisciplinary, diverse, and inclusive education and research are all critical to our success in overcoming the challenges facing today’s world. We are an integral part of the state of Wyoming’s only land-grant university, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

Our aim is to help you thrive by providing you with an intellectually robust environment that fosters your growth toward professional and scholarly work, where our faculty see you as a person not a number.  One-on-one meetings and conversations between students and faculty members are the norm here in the college.

We welcome you to join us in an academic environment that values inquiry, innovation, excellence, diversity, equity, inclusion, and compassion.

Our faculty are nationally and internationally known for their research that is helping to discover new knowledge, leading to change within our communities, the state, and the world, as well as for their innovative, cutting-edge teaching methods.

The need for individuals within the STEM industries has never been greater, and the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences is the right place at the right time for you to make a difference.

We hope you will browse through our website and learn more about all that the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences has to offer you. From active learning classrooms to research labs, to international and community-based learning opportunities, your experience at the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences will allow you to create your own professional and scholarly goals in a diverse environment of curiosity, discovery, compassion, inclusivity, equity, and collaboration.

On behalf of the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, I welcome you to visit any of our facilities and the endless opportunities that await you here! I look forward to the future we can engineer together.

Mission Statement

The College of Engineering and Physical Scienceswill serve the citizens of Wyoming through engineering and technology-oriented research and educational collaborations. Our research has made significant impact on Wyoming’s economic growth and development and the quality of life of Wyoming citizens.

Our researchers will conduct relevant research and provide practical answers to critical state and national needs. We will partner with industry, communities and academic institutions to solve problems to help improve the quality of life, promote economic development and enhance the educational systems of Wyoming. We will also promote new technology education and investigate problems in energy, water, and related topics. We will serve as a catalyst for collaborations that position Wyoming to be especially competitive for federal and industry funding, and play a major role in strengthening research leadership across the state.

In addition, as an institute of higher education, we work to improve student performance in math, science and technology. Our mission is to produce and transfer the highest quality, relevant engineering and technology-oriented research by leveraging capabilities statewide in order to:
  • Improve economic development and quality of life in Wyoming and the nation
  • Enhance educational systems
  • Support interdisciplinary fundamental and applied research
  • Transfer technology from research and development activities to useful applications
  • Commercialize promising technologies
