University of Wisconsin-Platteville

What College Should Be


Our university consists of three colleges: The College of Business, Industry, Life Sciences and Agriculture, the College of Liberal Arts and Education and finally the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science to which the Department
of Computer Science belongs. Our objective is to ensure that our students gain the knowledge and develop the mental skills, attitudes, and personal characteristics necessary to become successful citizens and professionals who can meet the present needs of business, industry,
government, and society, and the more demanding requirements of the future.
Therefore, curricular requirements provide a
strong foundation in the student's major field
of study supplemented by a broad background
in the social sciences and humanities. Our faculty really care about their students.
With their "open-door policy", our faculty will go out of their way to help you learn, so you can be successful. For more information please go to uwplatt.edu.
