WyoTech 2019

Carson Yeh places a part onto the engine his class at WyoTech has been creating with some help from his instructor, Eric Paul, and classmate, John Reeder. Part of the High Performance Power Train specialty program, the engine helps students learn how to put together an engine from scratch, as well as test things like torque electronically using data from the in-shop engine dynamometer.

LARAMIE – After facing an uncertain future, Laramie-based WyoTech has officially returned to its roots.

WyoTech alumnus Jim Mathis – who served as president of the school until 2002 – came back to purchase the school last year after previous owners, Zenith Education Group, moved to close it in November 2017 to focus on other endeavors. He took over as president and CEO in July, and he said the “small-town family-owned” business is already back on track, both financially and with enrollment.
