UW-Green Bay, NEW ERA partners launch collaborative engineering degrees

Area academic and manufacturing leaders are applauding the UW System Board of Regents’ approval of three new and collaborative engineering technology degrees. The Regents today (Friday, July 12) OK’d the new Leadership in Engineering Technology program, which allows students pursuing one of its three B.S. degrees — in Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology and Environmental Engineering Technology — to begin their studies at any of the 13 Northeastern Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance (NEW ERA) institutions, finishing their programs and earning their degrees at either UW-Green Bay or UW-Oshkosh. With these collaborative degree programs, our institutions will be better able to respond to changing educational and workforce needs here in Northeastern Wisconsin,” Chancellor Tom Harden said. “There are some logistical details we have yet to finalize, but the Board of Regents’ approval is a major step in the important process of implementing these engineering degree programs. Together, we look forward to better serving the students of our region, and ultimately boosting economic development in the New North.” See more details.
