What is UW-Platteville Collaborative Engineering?

UW-Platteville in partnership with UW Colleges provides place-bound students and working adults the opportunity to pursue an ABET-accredited bachelor’s degree in electrical or mechanical engineering from UW-Platteville. 

How does it work?

Students complete the associates degree requirements and pre-engineering courses at one of the thirteen UW Colleges campuses or through UW Colleges Online.  While working towards an associate of arts or science degree, students begin taking the UW-Platteville engineering courses by distance technology or in a face-to-face classroom depending on the student’s location.  

UW-Platteville engineering courses are taught face-to-face on the following UW Colleges campuses:

• UW-Fox Valley
• UW-Rock County
• UW-Washington County

The UW-Platteville engineering courses offered through distance technology are recorded during live classes and then made available via UW-Platteville’s online course management system, Desire 2 Learn. Collaborative Engineering students watch the recorded lectures via high-speed Internet at their convenience but must adhere to the course syllabus (i.e. homework assignments, exam dates).  For courses with lab components a lab manager travels to the various UW Colleges campuses to facilitate the labs.  

For distance technology courses a designated proctor will be available for each quiz or exam. 

Accreditation

Both the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and UW Colleges are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and are members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.


UW-Platteville’s engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), www.abet.org.
