About Omaha and the Peter Kiewit Institute:
Omaha is Nebraska's largest city and has a population of approximately 390,000. Omaha offers arts and culture, historic sites and museums, attractions and leisure activities, shopping, and sports and recreation to just name a few of the many assets of the city. Home to industry and large businesses alike, Omaha holds a high quality of life for its own community, a great place to work, live, and play.
Opened in 1999, the Peter Kiewit Institute of Omaha provides a brilliant combination of UNL's College of Engineering and UNO's College of Information Science and Technology. Close ties to business and industry allows the Peter Kiewit Institute to offer opportunities for graduate students that are simply second to none. From internships, to mentors, to networking opportunities with CEOs in some of the nation's leading firms... students find a personal approach that's both stimulating and challenging. There are even entrepreneurial research grants available so student ideas have a chance to blossom in preparation for the market place. With a wide array of scholarships, a state-of-the-art residence hall and conference center, as well as unique opportunities for both academic and career exploration, it's no wonder, enrollments are up more than 80% in just over three years and successful recruitment of "best and brightest" continues to grow at unprecedented rates.
Founded in 1869, the Lincoln campus of the University of Nebraska is the state's land-grant university and the only comprehensive university in Nebraska. Through its three primary missions of learning, discovery and engagement, the University of Nebraska is the state's intellectual center and has been recognized by the Legislature as the primary research and doctoral-degree granting institution in the state. Nebraska is one of a select group of research universities that holds membership in the Association of American Universities - a distinction granted in 1909. Nebraska was the first university west of the Mississippi to establish a graduate college (in 1896); today, NU is one of the top 50 American universities in the number of doctoral degrees granted annually. The University of Nebraska boasts 22 Rhodes Scholars and two Nobel laureates among its alumni.
