A Jackson college student has earned a place in University of Wyoming history: becoming one of the two first UW students to receive bachelor’s degrees in energy resource science offered by the School of Energy Resources. In addition to significant energy research and outreach, the School of Energy Resource’s mission includes creating a nationally competitive academic program to give UW students the tools to solve significant energy challenges. Nearly four dozen students are now enrolled, and a master’s degree program is now in development. Kyle McDonald entered the program after transferring to UW from the University of Montana to take advantage of Wyoming’s Hathaway Scholarship program. He decided energy resource science seemed like a good fit since the degree’s focus was broad enough for him to discover an interest in water quality, while challenging him to think creatively in upper level science courses. McDonald says he plans to pursue more education in the area of water quality, starting work on his master’s degree next semester.
