WyoTech to Unveil New Campus Expansion

WyoTech, a leading U.S. automotive, diesel, and collision trade school, announces it will host an open house on Nov. 19 to unveil the 90,000-square-foot expansion to its Laramie, Wyoming campus. The $16 million expansion will allow the school to increase its capacity to 1,200 students to accommodate a rapidly growing enrollment.

The expansion is a key asset in WyoTech’s vision to provide the best training, the best experience and the best outcomes in the automotive and diesel industry. It will help the school better serve its growing student population. Between 2018 and 2021, enrollment at WyoTech increased by 2,300%. And so far in 2022, the school has grown 6,817% since 2018. 

The new building includes eight new classrooms, capable of having up to 44 students each. Most of the building will be committed to shop space, creating a state-of-the-art training center for students to get hands-on training across its six specialty programs, including Street Rod, High-Performance Power Trains, Applied Service Management, Chassis Fabrication, Advanced Diesel, and Trim and Upholstery.

With this expansion, WyoTech is seeking new instructors to join its team and help provide the highest quality education to its students. The school is looking for automotive, diesel, and collision professionals passionate about teaching and mentoring the next generation of technicians.

Instructors will not just be spending time lecturing, but will also get to spend time in the shop getting their hands dirty along with the students. They get the reward of seeing the students’ eyes light up when they finally understand their passion and have the satisfaction of helping the students’ dreams become a reality. 

According to a 2022 report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, bachelor’s degree seekers decreased by 3% this year, and have fallen by 3.9% since 2019 — a two-year decline of 333,900. This comes at the same time enrollment in trade programs is swelling, with the number of trade school students nearly doubling between 1999 to 2014, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

WyoTech is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
