About the Program

Students can earn mechanical engineering, industrial and systems engineering, and electrical engineering degrees through UW-Platteville Engineering Partnerships (UW-PEP or PEP). Our unique delivery model includes online courses with hands-on lab experiences. Students complete most course work near their homes with limited travel to complete labs for courses that have a lab component.

Designed for working adults and students unable to move to Platteville, this alternative delivery method can help you increase your earning potential and career stability. The flexibility of the program allows you to complete your degree at your own pace. No credits are needed to get started, and you can continue working while earning your degree.

The unique model also works with partner sites throughout the state of Wisconsin. Students can be enrolled at both UW-Platteville and a partner location. These sites offer face-to-face courses, in addition to other modalities, for a variety of degree requirements including the general education requirements, math and science requirements, and even the general engineering requirements.  To learn more about each partnership, please review the articulation and transfer agreements. Starting with a partner is not necessary as UW-Platteville is able to offer the majority of the courses in an alternative delivery format.

Our degree programs emphasize practical aspects, application of theoretical concepts, and building teamwork and communication skills. You will become an industry-ready creative thinker who can apply analytical and technical skills to positions that include mechanical engineer, manufacturing engineer, electrical engineer, and systems engineer.
