The Alan E. Hall Center for Sales Excellence was established in 2013 through a grant funded by the Alan and Jeanne Hall Foundation to promote and explore sales excellence by collaboratively engaging academic and industry sales experts. The Center for Sales Excellence is the nexus of a community of learners and benefactors in sales expertise. It develops sales curricula and instruction for private and public institutions, creates online resources for sales, partners with industry to augment industry-specific sales skill-sets, promotes the development of improved sales technology and theory-based techniques, and links sales students with experienced sales professionals and organizations.

The National Center for Automotive Science and Technology

Director: Joe Thomas
Location: TE 201 Telephone: 801-626-7836  Email:

The Center for Automotive Science and Technology was established in 1997 to assist in developing a better understanding of vehicle emissions among academic, regulatory, and private sector entities, both locally and nationally. To do this, the Center provides training to automotive technicians, instructors, regulatory officials, field engineers, and consumer groups as well as doing applied research on vehicular emissions. Additionally, the Center gathers and disseminates information about the impact of emissions, design for emission abatement, and efficiency of vehicles. The Center is a cooperative endeavor of the University, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, and multiple private companies.

Location: ET 116  Telephone: 801-626-7552  Email: &

The College of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology values our role in providing a variety of engaging, fun, and instructive outreach programs.  Through the Center for Technology Outreach we strive to reach out to students and community members of all ages through our Speaker Series and K-12 Programs.

The Speaker Series features interesting and informative voices from the expansive field of technology experts in Utah and around the US.  Participants are intellectually enriched by the insight, understanding, and knowledge of people such as internet expert Radia Perlman, author Matt Richtel, and computer programmer and activist Richard Stallman.  The Speaker Series is open to the public and all are welcome.

Encouraging, supporting and providing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) opportunities to K-12 students is an important and valued component of our service to the community.  The scope of our K-12 Outreach is multi-layered.

  • Introduction and Awareness: Short-term events to build interest and awareness in technology such as Parent/Daughter Engineering Day, Family Engineering Day, and STEM Fests & Expo’s.
  • Engage and Experience: Programs designed to engage students in more committed STEM activities and increase their confidence and interest in pursuing STEM related majors and careers.  These include, FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics, FIRST LEGO League, Seaperch Underwater Robotics, Engineering and Technology Summer Camps, and more.
  • Educate and Support: In-depth academic enrichment, designed with the goal of impacting the long-term education and career pathways of students.  WSU PREP and Project Lead the Way both highlight the college’s long-term investment in K-12 education and Utah’s youth.
