Program Educational Objectives

Our Program Educational Objectives represent our vision of what our graduates will be able to do in their early careers. Graduates of the Paper Science and Engineering Program at UWSP will be productive employees in the paper and allied industries in the three to five years immediately following graduation because they:

  • Have a sound background in fundamental science and engineering principles as applied to paper science and engineering;
  • Understand related societal issues such as environmental protection, occupational health and safety, resource management, and appropriate business skills;
  • Are well-rounded professionals in terms of teamwork, communication, and problem solving;
  • Have developed life-long learning skills and abilities.
