What is The UW-Platteville Collaborative Engineering Program?
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
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 Program 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.
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 is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), www.abet.org.
