Milwaukee School of Engineering, WI.
OSCAR WERWATH ARRIVED IN MILWAUKEE FROM GERMANY IN 1903 AND FOUNDED A SCHOOL TO MAKE SKILLED MECHANICS, TECHNICIANS, AND ENGINEERS OF THE UNSKILLED AND THE APPRENTICED. BY 1908, THE SCHOOL OFFERED TWO FULL-TIME TWO-SEMESTER COURSES IN ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL AREAS IN ADDITION TO EVENING PROGRAMS. COOPERATIVE ENGINEERING EDUCATION, INTRODUCED IN 1911, ENABLED STUDENTS TO GAIN PRACTICAL ON-THE-JOB TRAINING. IN THE FIELD OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION, THE SCHOOL PRECEDED OTHER PUBLIC AND PRIVATE EFFORTS IN THE CITY AND IN THE STATE. IN 1917, THE STATE AUTHORIZED THE SCHOOL TO GRANT BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREES IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING. THE NEXT YEAR MARKED COMPLETION OF THE DESIGN OF THE CONCENTRIC CURRICULUM, A DESIGN TO WHICH IT HAS REMAINED COMMITTED. THE CONCENTRIC CURRICULUM OFFERS A SUCCESSIVE SERIES OF TERMINAL COURSES EACH COMPLETE IN ITSELF YET PROVIDING, WITH EACH COURSE COMPLETION, AN ADVANCED STEP IN EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY. AT THE SAME TIME EACH COURSE IS A PART OF THE DEGREE PROGRAM. TODAY, THE SCHOOL IS NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED. MORE THAN 300 SUBJECTS ARE OFFERED BY A STAFF OF 125. OVER 58,000 STUDENTS HAVE ATTENDED THE SCHOOL, AND ITS GRADUATES ARE EMPLOYED BY MORE THAN 4,000 FIRMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. (EM)
