The  University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents committee OK’d nearly $1.9 million in new grant funding for the new collaborative engineering technology degrees on Friday, Nov. 1, 2013.  The funds will help jump-start a trio of new and collaborative engineering technology degrees.  Students in the program will be able to begin their academic studies at any one of 13 Northeastern Wisconsin Educational Resource Alliance (NEW ERA) universities and colleges, and finish the program at either UW-Green Bay or UW-Oshkosh. The program offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology and Environmental Engineering Technology through collaboration between the NEW ERA institutions, colleges and an array of business partners.
