We have agreements and pathways with many institutions across the region. 

Plan Your Path to Success!

UW-Platteville Pathways

In addition to the on-campus engineering degrees offered at UW-Platteville, students can complete the UW-Platteville bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering at the Madison College Truax campus through the UW-Platteville Engineering Partnerships (UW-PEP) program. Madison College math, science, and engineering courses are designed to transfer seamlessly to meet the requirements for UW-Platteville’s engineering degrees on-campus or through the PEP program!

UW-Madison Pathways

Madison College’s math, science and engineering courses also transfer directly to UW-Madison’s College of Engineering (COE). Visit the COE website to learn more about engineering majors and degree requirement at UW-Madison. Students interested in transferring to the COE at UW-Madison should follow the Off-Campus Transfer Student guidelines.
