Three engineering students surveying the land for their engineering survey course Casper College offers all of the courses required in the first two years of the engineering curriculum at the University of Wyoming and most major universities throughout the United States. Our students have successfully transferred to, and graduated from, universities in the region as well as many others throughout the nation.

One of the great advantages is our small class size, along with a faculty devoted to you, the student.  This advantage has been a major factor in the success of our students as they transfer to their next school. Students transferring from Casper College can boast a higher grade-point average in their junior and senior engineering courses than students starting a university.

The Engineering Department faculty take pride in maintaining the ability to offer students traditional labs and computer labs with up-to-date equipment. The Engineering Department also offers courses via Internet.
