University rank #401 (ARWU) , WY,
Civil/Structural engineers design and maintain buildings, bridges, and other structures constructed from various materials (concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and reinforced plastics).

About

They use modern analytical techniques (e.g., finite elements) to predict behavior of new structures and to analyze failures in existing structures. Structural analysis and design are grounded in fundamental principles of solid mechanics, which form an essential component of a structural engineer's education.

Structural engineering faculty at UW conduct research in a broad range of areas, including bridge rating, computer-aided design, light-framed buildings, manufactured homes, heavy timber frames, bridge deterioration, bridge joint behavior and design, heat straightening of damaged bridge steel girders, and wind effects on low-rise structures and vehicles. The structural laboratories include facilities to test full-sized structures with MTS testing equipment to simulate dynamic as well as static loads.

Architectural
The structural design option prepares the Architectural Engineer to analyze, design and detail the structural components of building systems. The curriculum builds upon a strong engineering science background of statics, soil and material mechanics and structural analysis to develop competency in steel, timber and concrete design. It also provides many of the concepts that architects use to make a building aesthetically pleasing and functional.

Accreditation

The University of Wyoming has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission continuously since 1923. Following the completion of its self-study, the University hosted its last Higher Learning Commission site review team and received continued accreditation in 2009-2010. The University’s next scheduled comprehensive review from the Higher Learning Commission will be in 2019-2020.
