Carroll students now can earn dual degrees without ever leaving the region, under a new agreement with UW-Platteville.
A new agreement between Carroll University and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will allow Carroll students to earn Bachelor of Science degrees in mechanical and electrical engineering without ever leaving southeast Wisconsin. Carroll students will complete UW-Platteville engineering courses in an online format through UW-Platteville Engineering Partnerships (UW-PEP).

"We are proud to enter into this collaborative agreement with Carroll University to bring UW-Platteville Engineering Partnerships to southeast Wisconsin. We will be strengthening the Wisconsin workforce by integrating Carroll's applied physics degree with UW-Platteville's mechanical and electrical engineering degrees, both of which are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET," said Chancellor Dennis J. Shields. "While our institutions have physical boundaries, educational opportunities for students do not. By signing this agreement, we have furthered the opportunity for students to take advantage of the high-quality education offered at our two universities."

“Carroll University is known for selectively and strategically developing partnerships to address business and community needs. This agreement will address the need for more engineers, as expressed by our business partners, in a cost-effective way by using current physical and human resources,” said Carroll President Dr. Cindy Gnadinger. “It also provides Carroll the opportunity to grow our pre-engineering program for traditional students and working adults interested in earning a degree in mechanical or electrical engineering right here in southeast Wisconsin.”

During the first four years, students will take courses in person at Carroll and stream select courses from UW-Platteville. By the end of their fourth year, Carroll students will earn their Bachelor of Science in applied physics. During their fifth year, students will complete their UW-Platteville Bachelor of Science in mechanical or electrical engineering in an on-line format.
