The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh will launch a new automation engineering degree program in response to demand from local manufacturers.
It’s the first program of its kind in the UW System, after it received approval from the Board of Regents earlier this month. Classes will begin in the fall with the official program launch in 2024.
Automation engineering is the university’s second engineering program approved this summer, as UW-Oshkosh is also launching a biomedical engineering program this fall. And it isn’t the only university in the system to announce a new program aimed at supporting Wisconsin companies.
