Designed with you in mind

As an electrical engineer, you'll design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacturing of electrical equipment from the smallest internal components of a cell phone to the largest power grids. It's a field with its eye on the future and integral to the development of electric motors, radar and navigation systems, and self-driving automobiles.

The UW-Platteville Electrical Engineering program, accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,, emphasizes use of theoretical concepts that compliment practical engineering design and development. Learn with cutting-edge tools in areas of emphasis such as electronics and communications, computer, control, and power and energy engineering.

At UW-Platteville, you'll graduate as an industry ready creative thinker who applies analytical and technical skills to address design, sales, and management challenges at leading global corporations in communications, technology, power manufacturing, and more.
