Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Building receives second phase of funding from state

The Colorado Legislative Council Staff announced today that the state would fund phase two of the Fort Lewis College Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Building.

New Engineering accreditation is mark of excellence

Earning a mark of excellence recognized worldwide, the Fort Lewis College Engineering program has officially received accreditation from ABET, the international accrediting body for applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology programs. The stamp of approval for FLC Engineering comes just as the College is breaking ground for a new Geosciences, Physics and Engineering building.

Students aid professor researching lightning on the edge of space

Ask any of the 275 students in the Physics & Engineering Department at Fort Lewis College what a “sprite” is, and they’re probably not going to tell you it’s a soft drink or a green fairy from a mythical land. Their responses might be something more like this:

“A ghostly flash above the clouds.”

“Violent, beautiful bursts of energy.”

“Vertical, red-orangery lightning.”

“A rare occurrence.”

New Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Building an investment in the future

Demolition began on a section of Berndt Hall that will be the new home of the Fort Lewis College Geosciences, Physics, and Engineering (GPE) Building. The new building will be three times larger than the old structure, which was built in 1968. Completion of the new facility is expected in fall 2016.

Students' robots tackle tough terrain in planetary exploration challenge

Four FLC students got to experience first-hand the challenges of designing, developing, and building – and then presenting in public – a robotic vehicle for traversing the surface of an alien planet.

Students from the Physics & Engineering Department put their creations to the test in April at the 8th Annual Colorado Space Grant Consortium Robotics Challenge, held at Great Sand Dunes National Park. The site is so like an alien world, in fact, that it is where the two Viking Mars Landers were tested before their pioneering voyages to Mars in 1975.
