LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming’s new $105 million engineering education building opened for classes this fall.

The Laramie Boomerang reports that last week hundreds of people attended the ceremonial ribbon-cutting of the Engineering Education and Research Building, which university and state officials see as helping make the college one of the nation’s top engineering schools.

Former Gov. Dave Freudenthal (FREE’-dehn-thawl), who sat on the task force that oversaw the new building’s construction, spoke at the Friday groundbreaking and urged UW not to become complacent in its ambitions for the engineering school.

Engineering college dean Michael Pishko says UW now needs to invest in engineering professors, noting that the college could use about 20 new engineering faculty in the next few years.
