"In the recent past, we've only been able to offer three of the required courses on the Cheyenne campus," says engineering instructor Dr. Mohamed Chakhad. "Students have had to take all the other Engineering Science classes at the University of Wyoming."
Due to the greater need for these courses closer to UW; a stronger demand for Engineering Science
at the Albany County Campus of LCCC; and proximity to resources including lab space and additional instructors, as of the Fall 2014 semester, the program will move to the Albany County Campus
"It will continue to provide all the courses necessary for the Engineering Science associate degree," says LCCC Dean of Math & Sciences Dr. John Sanford. "And because students have had to go to Laramie to complete the classes they've needed for the degree, it simply makes more sense to house the entire program on the Albany County Campus."
Students currently enrolled in Engineering Science will have the option to complete Statics (ES 2110) on the Cheyenne campus during the Fall 2014 semester, or they can complete all the required courses through the Albany County Campus.
Prerequisites not specific to the Engineering Science degree will continue to be offered at both the Albany County Campus and the Cheyenne campus.
An informational and question and answer session will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, April 18, in Arp Building Room 124. Students are encouraged to attend the session to find out more about the programs move to Laramie, as well as scholarship opportunities available to Engineering Science students.
