The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s College of Science, Engineering, and Technology provides a dynamic, hands-on approach to higher education, while fostering new and growing opportunities for students, faculty and the community. It includes programs in Human Biology, Natural and Applied Sciences and the Richard J. Resch School of Engineering. The College also includes the nationally acclaimed Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute (EMBI). Each adds to the rich history, environmental health and sustainability of the region, state, nation and world. The College also has a strong partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW-Green Bay), with faculty from Human Biology providing direct instruction for the Medical College of Wisconsin students and preparing the next generation of students who dream of careers in the health sciences.

The College of Science, Engineering, and Technology offers majors and minors in biology, human biology, chemistry, environmental science, geoscience, mathematics, computer science, physics, electrical engineering technology, environmental engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology and mechanical engineering.  Faculty in the College are accomplished teachers and scholars providing high quality instruction and hands-on teaching and research experiences to students in laboratory and field settings.  The College has consistently obtained funding from local, state and federal sources to support campus and community-based research projects.

Starting in the fall of 2019, the Brown County STEM Innovation Center located on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus will become home for Mechanical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering Technology programs and include dedicated laboratories and research equipment.  Existing state-of-the art laboratory and research facilities include a scanning electron microscope and a human cadaver laboratory.  In addition to the laboratory and research facilities associated with Human Biology, Natural and Applied Sciences, and the Richard J. Resch School of Engineering, the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute provide unique research and internship opportunities on campus and in the community.  The College also supports seminar series in Natural and Applied Science and Human Biology, as well as several student clubs and organizations, and providing numerous named scholarships for high achieving students.
 

Students in the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology will have the opportunity to:
  • Gain important knowledge and skills pertinent to their chosen field of study
  • Develop critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills
  • Engage in hands-on teaching and research experiences
  • Utilize modern laboratories and equipment
  • Learn in an interdisciplinary environment that promotes diversity and inclusion
  • Become a complete student and citizen by participating in internships, travel courses, and other extracurricular activities 
  • Fully prepare themselves for their next professional ambition – whether it be employment, further credentialing, or graduate/clinical education.

Ways You Can Help Our College and Our Students

The College of Science, Engineering, and Technology was established at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay on July 1, 2016, during the transition to a new four-college model advanced by Chancellor Gary Miller.  The College of Science, Engineering, and Technology includes undergraduate programs in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering technology, environment science, geoscience, human biology, mathematics, mechanical engineering and physics; graduate programs in environmental science and policy and the collaborative on-line program in sustainable management; and also includes the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity and the Environmental Management and Business Institute.  At its core, the College of Science, Engineering and Technology is focused on:

  • People – we strive to provide the best educational experience for our students, with our high quality faculty and facilities providing relevant laboratory and research opportunities.
  • Programs – the majors offered in CSET are in high demand fields, with human biology being one of the largest majors on campus and rapid growth being experience in engineering technology (electrical, mechanical and environmental). 
  • Partnerships – faculty and students in CSET benefit from ongoing collaborations with business, industry, government, non-profits and other regional educational institutions such as the Medical College of Wisconsin.

As the founding Dean of the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology and a fellow UWGB alumni (91’ and 93”), I would encourage you to consider making a financial contribution that will allow us to expand the educational opportunities available to our students now and in the future.  Thank you for considering this important request.
