Electrical Engineering

(Bachelor of Science)

UW-Green Bay Engineering

One of the fastest-growing regions in the state and the Midwest for engineering jobs, Northeast Wisconsin will see tremendous growth in the need for and recruitment of new engineers. This region has the most open positions for engineers in the state and has seen an 18% increase in demand for engineers since 2010. Engineering as a career focuses on theoretical aspects of mathematical, scientific and engineering principals. New professionals with a Bachelor of  Science in Electrical Engineering from UW-Green Bay will be perfectly-timed and well-prepared to meet the swell in demand for engineers, leading to high-paying, rewarding careers in some of the region’s most sought after employers.

Electrical Engineering 

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is proud to announce the newest engineering program in Northeast Wisconsin, the Electrical Engineering program. Part of the College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) and offered through the Richard J. Resch School of Engineering (RSE), the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Electrical Engineering is designed as a cutting-edge program that will offer students individualized attention from award-winning professors, a hands-on education with state-of the-art equipment, and opportunities for research and internships with some of the largest companies and employers in the region.  

Electrical engineering is the application of scientific and mathematical principles to the design, manufacture, and control of structures, machines, processes, and systems. In the past, the work of electrical engineers has had a direct and vital impact on people’s lives. Electrical engineers have been responsible for the creation of electric power, modern electronics, computers, electronic communication systems, modern flight controllers, automated manufacturing, and medical diagnostic tools. An electrical engineering education continues to provide opportunities for solving problems of great social significance and for increasing people’s quality of life. The electrical engineering program spans the disciplines of electronics, computers, circuits, electromagnetic fields, power systems, controls, communications, and signal processing.

Students will benefit from relationships with local technical colleges, and local industry to complete a B.S. in engineering in the Northeast Wisconsin area. Students may start earning their degree at UW-Green Bay or local technical colleges to give maximum flexibility in degree completion. In addition, the Northeast Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance, NEW ERA, has established advisory boards linking leaders in regional industry and participating institutions to the major. Through these relationships students will have many opportunities for internships, co-op experiences, and employment after graduation.
