WPR: ‘UW-Green Bay announces new Mechanical Engineering program’

Wisconsin Public Radio ran an extensive story about UW-Green Bay’s new Mechanical Engineering program. “The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has announced a new mechanical engineering program, funded in part by a $5 million private donation. The gift comes from Richard Resch, CEO of the Green Bay-based office furniture manufacturer KI and the new school will be named in his honor. Resch said his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from MIT, “served me well for many, many years. It also got me into Harvard Business School where I learned a lot about business.” Resch said northeastern Wisconsin needs a larger engineering program, “I think this community is large enough.”
