Over the past four years, UWRF has made a significant investment in its engineering facilities, renovating more than half of the 23,000 square feet of space dedicated to the engineering and engineering technology programs. At the same time, many pieces of test equipment and instrumentation were upgraded.
There has also been an investment in faculty. There are six faculty members dedicated to the engineering programs, supported by colleagues in environmental science, physics, math and other programs. The engineering faculty have diverse areas of expertise, including industry experience in water resources, air quality and solid waste management, and bioprocessing.
