PHASE I & II PROGRAMS
DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE & TECHNOLOGY
The Wyoming Data Hub will be a central stop for discovering and accessing research data and associated information products developed by UW and community college researchers. The sharing and re-use of research data will support education and training, new research and development within academia and industry partners, and technology and information transfer to build computational capacity and data-driven decision making for government organizations, new entrepreneurs, and all Wyoming citizens. This unified effort will help spur economic development, strengthen Wyoming’s workforce, support industry, and promote research collaborations.
SCHOOL OF COMPUTING:
The establishment of a software development program offers students opportunities to work in this highly skilled field and meet employers’ needs to grow and remain competitive in a technology-driven economy. The program accelerates Wyoming’s goals to diversify the state’s economy. This program began in Phase I and will continue into Phase II to include more students from institutions across Wyoming. The software development program is expected to be the first to utilize the course sharing platform.
The objective is to develop comprehensive curriculum offerings with an intriguing look into how blockchain innovation will affect industries, businesses, personal finance, and civilization at large. This curriculum is designed for high schools, community colleges and continuing education and is ideal for blockchain beginners who seek to understand the “big picture” implications and opportunities of blockchain and how it can impact their futures and Wyoming’s economic development - without all the technological complexities.
DIGITAL CREDENTIAL WALLET:
A digital credential wallet is a secure tool for managing and storing digital credentials. These credentials may include academic degrees, professional certifications, micro-credentials, and even government-issued identity documents such as passports and driver's licenses. This digital credential wallet will allow students and employers the opportunity to connect in a way never before possible and will provide support for building career pathways outside of a traditional education model.
