Collaborative Engineering Program Degree Requirements

Electrical Engineering

You will earn your degree in electrical engineering by successfully completing your general education, pre-engineering, and professional electrical engineering courses. All new freshmen and transfer students who do not immediately qualify for a professional program will be required to start in the general engineering program. To advance to the electrical engineering program you must earn a minimum core grade point average of 2.5 or higher in the following courses:

UW-Platteville Course UW Colleges Course Course Title
MATH 2640 MAT 221 Calculus & Analytic Geometry I
MATH 2740 MAT 222 Calculus & Analytic Geometry II
CHEMSTRY 1450 CHE 165 Chemistry for Engineers
GENENG 1000 EGR 105* Engineering Success Skills
GENENG 1030 EGR 105* Introduction to Engineering Projects
ENGLISH 1130 ENG 101 College Writing I

*GENENG 1000 and GENENG 1030 are equivalent to EGR 105 Engineering Fundamentals and Introduction to Entgineering Projects.

You must earn a C- or better in Calculus I, II, and III; Differential Equations; and Physics II, when used as a prerequisite for electrical engineering courses. UW-Fox Valley and UW-Rock County may require a C or better. A C- or better must also be earned in the following courses if they are used as a prerequisite or co-requisite of an electrical engineering course.

  • ELECTENG 3130 Solid State Electronic Devices
  • ELECTENG 3320 Automatic Controls
  • ELECTENG 3410 Introduction to Electrical Machines and Power Systems
  • ELECTENG 3780 Introduction to Microprocessors
  • PHYSICS 3140 Modern Physics
  • COMPUTER 1430 Programming in C++

A C- or better must be earned in all of the required electrical engineering courses along with an average GPA of 2.0 or higher in all electrical engineering courses. Review all of the electrical engineering degree requirements and course offerings.

Mechanical Engineering

You will earn your degree in mechanical engineering by successfully completing your general engineering, pre-engineering, and professional mechanical engineering courses. All new freshmen or transfer students who do not immediately qualify for a professional program will be required to start in the general engineering program. To advance to the mechanical engineering program you must earn a minimum core grade point average of 2.7 or higher in the following courses:

UW-Platteville Course UW Colleges Course Course Title
MATH 2640 MAT 221 Calculus & Analytic Geometry I
MATH 2740 MAT 222 Calculus & Analytic Geometry II

GENENG 1030 EGR 105* Introduction to Engineering Projects
GENENG 2030 EGR 110 Engineering Modeling and Design
ENGLISH 1130 ENG 101 College Writing I
PHYSICS 2240 PHY 201 General Physics I

*GENENG 1000 and GENENG 1030 are equivalent to EGR 105 Engineering Fundamentals and Introduction to Engineering Projects.

You must earn a C- or better in Calculus I, II, and III; Physics I; Statistics; Strength of Materials; Dynamics; Engineering Model and Design; Applications of Electrical Engineering; and Mechanics of Materials, when used as a prerequisite for mechanical engineering courses.

An average GPA of 2.0 or higher must be earned in all required mechanical engineering courses. Review all of the mechanical engineering degree requirements and course offerings.
