Edgewood College and UW-Platteville Enhance Partnership
Madison, Wis. (August 19, 2021) – Edgewood College is pleased to announce a new, enhanced partnership with the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Now, students located anywhere in the state of Wisconsin can earn the UW-Platteville degree through a unique hybrid delivery of face-to-face and online courses, along with hands-on lab experiences.
With the Engineering Dual Degree program, students complete two degrees simultaneously. Students may earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Edgewood College, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering at UW-Platteville.
“This new enhanced approach leverages technology and modes of delivery that make an already strong partnership even better for our students,” Andrew P. Manion, President of Edgewood College, said. “Our academic programs, delivered in a close-knit community of learners, position our students to achieve their goals, including the outstanding Engineering programs at UW-Platteville.”
“The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is pleased to expand our successful partnership with Edgewood College,” Chancellor Dennis J. Shields, said. “While our institutions have physical boundaries, educational opportunities for students do not. Through our UW-Platteville Engineering Partnerships Program, we continue to strengthen the Wisconsin workforce and provide additional opportunities for students across the state, wherever they reside.”
Students take foundational courses in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and required general education courses at Edgewood College. After three years, students move into the hybrid delivery model to complete the Electrical or Mechanical Engineering degree with UW-Platteville.
