Their hope is to add more teaching space for their students, as well as add other buildings such as a recreation center. Their goal is to provide their students with professional technical training, as well as providing them with a college experience not seen at most tech schools.

This is a huge development for WyoTech, as their staff and student population have skyrocketed within the last two years. They have gone from 11 students to over 200 students, and 7 staff members to nearly 80.

WyoTech would like to thank the residents of Laramie for all their support over the years, as it has helped the school tremendously and this new step would not be a reality without them.
