Research Infrastructure Development

Representative Cynthia Lummis (District At Large)



Wyoming remains the state with the smallest population and its economy is largely driven by extractive and energy-related industries. The University of Wyoming is the only Ph.D. granting research institution in the state and therefore scientific activities that address key areas of state concern are concentrated at UW. One of the main areas that has been identified by the state and university as a high-priority is materials science research. The University of Wyoming, as well as the Wyoming Governor’s Science and Engineering Task Force, have made the development of a Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) program a priority in academic planning. Wyoming NASA EPSCoR has been critical to the development of the MSE program at UW, which brings together students and faculty from across campus. Materials science is a multidisciplinary field involving collaborations that go beyond traditional academic programs and the MSE program provides a rich environment for discovery.
