EDGE Program tours MSOE

Members of Moraine Park’s EDGE Progam toured MSOE in Milwaukee on Monday, Dec. 4, learning how their current programs might transfer into a bachelor’s degree there.  Experiencing the different feel of a city campus, and having the chance to see the engineering labs available at MSOE was exciting for those in attendance!

Josh Eidenshink and Kerry Zenner, currently enrolled in MPTC’s Mechanical Design Technology program, were both interested in MSOE’s Electrical Engineering program, but also learned about a more general BSE (bachelor’s in engineering) degree that could also be focused with elective courses once enrolled.   Robert Miller, currently in MPTC’s dual-degree IT-Network Support and Technical Support Specialist programs, was interested in both the business degrees available at MSOE (with an opportunity to emphasize Information Technology Systems), and also learned about a new User Experience & Communication Design major being offered.
