    program in Agricultural Engineering Technology and a new program in Agricultural Engineering The new program in Agricultural Engineering is part of the Northwest Wisconsin Engineering Consortium a joint effort by UW River Falls UW Eau Claire and UW Stout to bring a range of engineering programs to western and northern Wisconsin Many UWRF agricultural engineering technology graduates are employed in this region by small and mid size companies or local operations of national corporations These same companies need professional engineers but have difficulty attracting and retaining graduates of engineering programs from outside the region For more information on each program Agricultural Engineering Agricultural Engineering Technology What is the difference between Agricultural Engineering and Agricultural Engineering Technology Professional Engineering and Engineering Technology programs are separate but closely related programs Professional engineering programs are more theoretical and focus on conceptual design requiring higher level math and calculus based physics while the engineering technology program is more practically focused and spends more time on applied problem solving and engineering The professional engineering program is an ABET accredited program and graduates are eligible to become licensed Professional Engineers PE The career paths of professional engineering and engineering technology graduates often intersect in related but different capacities Many engineering applications have both professional engineers and engineering technologists working on the same project For example professional engineers may design a machine waterway or food processing line while engineering technologists would work with the engineers skilled trades and technicians to inspect test validate and or commission the new device News Events UWRF Agricultural Engineering Technology students have developed a hops thresher perfectly sized for small scale hops growers This prototype performed quite well during a test run earlier this month In an hour this thresher can process what would take one person eight hours to do An
