GREEN BAY–The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will expand its engineering offerings by adding a degree in electrical engineering. They started in 2015 with engineering technology degrees, mechanical, electrical and environmental, and expanded to mechanical engineering in fall 2018.
“UW-Green Bay is meeting the demand for engineers due to the manufacturing growth in the Green Bay area and the NEW North region,” said John Katers, UW-Green Bay’s dean of Science, Engineering and Technology. “As the economy continues to shift toward one of innovation and technology–even in historically important manufacturing sectors like the paper industry–electrical engineers are in high demand. Because we have such a strong employer base in the area who can offer internships and other hands-on experiences, we can grow that kind of talent right here. It’s very exciting to be able to meet this demand.”
