About

The University of Wisconsin-Stout is a public, 4-year University located in the beautiful historic town of Menomonie, Wisconsin. Students enjoy living in a small, safe community with the amenities of charming downtown Menomonie, just 1 block from campus, but also have easy access to the amenities of a large city, being located just 1 hour from the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Our renowned faculty, research opportunities, nationally recognized cooperative education program, and diverse program offerings prepare students well for fields in 6 career cluster areas: Art, Design & Graphics; Business & Management; Education; Science, Engineering & Math; Information Technology & Communications; and Human & Social Sciences. As a polytechnic university, our campus has a long and rich history of immersing students in industry-relevant, hands-on learning. In fact, we have 3 times as many labs as lecture halls, which is partially due to support from industry partners with nationally recognized companies like Target, Thomson Reuters, Sony, and 3M. If you are someone who learns best by doing, then UW-Stout is going to be a great fit – applied learning is what we do best! This type of educational experience is what leads students to find great success upon graduation, with a college-wide employment rate hovering in the 97-98% rate annually.
