LCCC to offer architecture courses

Jun 10, 2013

The Wyoming chapter of the American Institute of Architects is working with Laramie County Community College to make it easier for Wyoming residents to become licensed architects.

The Institute’s president-elect Chet Lockard says UW does not have an accredited architectural design program, and he says that’s a problem.

“Students have to leave the state of Wyoming to complete their architectural education,” Lockard said. “Often times they don’t return.”

 Starting this fall, Laramie County Community College will begin offering a fast-track degree program.

 

Amid falling natural gas prices, Gov. Matt Mead has called on all state agencies to prepare for eight percent budget cuts. For Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, the decrease in funding could mean staff reductions and elimination of certain programs.

With an eight percent budget cut, Eastern Wyoming College would likely have to make tough hiring decisions, says Bob Cox, vice president of finance and administrative services for the college.
