About the Idaho Falls Center

The University of Idaho, Idaho Falls Center is uniquely positioned to offer outstanding research and educational opportunities to students in southeastern Idaho. Located near the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and home for the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES), UI Idaho Falls is a premier graduate, research and development center.

UI Idaho Falls is currently addressing state and national energy needs in partnership with INL, and provides diverse research-based graduate science, engineering and technology programs with a limited number of undergraduate degree programs.

The school's ongoing vision is to be a nationally recognized institution of choice for students, faculty and researchers in the science and engineering fields; UI Idaho Falls’ strategic vision includes collaboration with a variety of institutions. Partnerships include:

  • The Idaho National Laboratory, which allows students access to INL resources, capabilities and expertise, and in turn, helps INL with advanced energy research, production, and safety. It also offers internships, postdoctoral research and exchanges.

  • The Center for Advanced Energy Studies, a research and education consortium between Boise State University, INL, Idaho State University, UI and the University of Wyoming. CAES provides students the opportunity to work with world-class scientists and engineers while pursuing their degrees.

The University of Idaho began offering classes in Idaho Falls in 1954, supporting the U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratory activities. The program evolved to meet the educational needs of the INL and has since awarded more than 1,200 advanced degrees.

In partnering with INL, CAES and other state universities, UI Idaho Falls delivers advanced education and research programs that promote excellence in scholarship and critical thinking to enhance today and prepare for tomorrow.
