- About UW
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.

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.
Our current facility houses educational spaces, computer and machine labs, and study areas for nearly 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students. This building is a pillar in our program and has graduated some of the world's most famous engineers for nearly a century.
A $25 million public-private investment, the home to the School of Energy Resources was completed in 2013. It is a collaborative facility where students, researchers, academic professionals and industry partners can engage in solving critical challenges in the energy industry.
Providing 32 teaching laboratories equipped for chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and computer science, this facility began hosting classes in 2016. It represents a $50 million public investment.
Since 2012, UW has enjoyed privileged access to the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne. It represents a $100 million public private-federal facility investment. It’s one of the world’s fastest big-data computers.
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.
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.
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.
