Facilities and Resources

Each classroom, learning space and resource is designed to promote interdisciplinary collaboration between students, departments and even other programs across campus. Without this important process, we wouldn’t be able to educate future engineers who will go on to solve the most important challenges that matter to Wyoming and the world.

Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB)

Completed in 2019, this is a new, state-of-the-art engineering facility that fosters innovation and collaboration among students and faculty. The approximately 110,000-square-foot facility is the most ambitious construction project in the university’s history at $105 million. The facility is part of UW’s Tier-1 Engineering Initiative.

High Bay Research Facility

This facility is equipped to carry out large-scale research and development to solve energy-related challenges. Featuring a world-class facility to investigate flow in porous media in oil and gas reservoirs, it will initially host studies and projects to improve understanding in porous media, unconventional reservoir production and coal conversion. The facility—a $50 million public-private investment— was completed in 2017.

Student Innovation Center Makerspace

A cutting-edge makerspace lab created to foster imaginative, collaborative and innovative design projects. The SIC is located on the first level of the Engineering Education and Research Building on campus and is open to students, faculty and members of the community. It is the largest of four makerspace facilities available on campus. Equipment includes economic and advanced 3D printers, laser cutters, 3D scanning and a full-scale wood shop.

King Air Research Aircraft

UW is the only academic institution in the United States that provides a research aircraft facility to the atmospheric science community. With a recent grant to upgrade a new plane, the new instruments will enhance the King Air’s already strong tropospheric profiling capabilities. Typical missions include studies of boundary layer structure, air-sea interactions, cloud and aerosol physics, troposphere profiling and atmospheric chemistry.
