Former Gov. Dave Freudenthal speaks at a ceremonial ribbon-cutting for the Engineering Education and Research Building on Friday.

Hundreds of people crammed into the Engineering Education and Research Building for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting on the $105 million facility, a building aimed to bring the University of Wyoming’s engineering program up to Tier 1 status, a somewhat loose term used by outside observers like the Carnegie Foundation describe the nation’s top engineering schools.

The building opened for classes this fall and was constructed under budget.
