Engineering a solid investment, UW-Green Bay says

A weekend story in the Green Bay Press-Gazette explains why the time is right for engineering at UW-Green Bay. “As a community, we’ve invested in infrastructure, in the Green Bay Packers and beyond. Now, it’s time to reinvest in education,” said Dean of UW-Green Bay’s College of Science and Technology, John Katers. Katers was referencing support for the University’s hope to create a mechanical engineering degree program and a school of engineering that would encompass the new degree and the courses the university already offers in environmental, electrical and mechanical engineering technology. The engineering program is key in a plan to develop a 63-acre research and innovation park on the south end of the UW-Green Bay campus. “This should be a great place for our students to learn and for the area to retain our best and brightest while attracting more talent here,” Katers said in the story. “As a community, we’ve invested in infrastructure, in the Green Bay Packers and beyond. Now, it’s time to reinvest in education.”
