Degree: Industrial Design
Graduation Year: 2013

The Industrial Design program at UW-Stout just gets the job done. The instructors are nice and work hard, but you learn basic skills that won't get you very far in the industry unless you do your own work beyond school. Upon graduating and starting my first job, I realized that I was only prepared to do esthetic iterations in the real world. If you want a more intellectually-stimulating job that involves research and ergonomics, then I would recommend checking out another school. The network that you have access to through UW-Stout is also not that great. It can easily get you a job at an industrial company somewhere in Wisconsin, but again, if you want a more glamorous job at a design firm, then I would go elsewhere. All that said, UW-Stout has had a few students that have gone above and beyond expectations and got jobs at reputable firms, but that does not happen very often and is usually a result of the student's hard work outside of the program.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very pleased with my experience at Stout. These are genuine structured classes, taught on line. Once you get in the groove, it is easy to keep the rhythm going. Professors were available, helpful, and informative. The administrative staff is wonderful, always with quick and personal responses.

Degree: Engineering Technology, General
Graduation Year: 2010

It was a very tech based college, you get laptops as mandatory for all degrees and have internet available all over campus. Very nice labs and equipment, the teachers almost all have several years worth of professional experience before becoming teachers so they really have a lot of practical knowledge. The school is continuously trying to improve its faculties and stay up to date on technologies which is very nice.

Degree: Food Technology and Processing
Graduation Year: 2000

The school is mediocre. Even a elementary school kid will ace the Courses. The standard of teaching is low level. The masters degree was a waste of my time and money. It did not help me in my professional career. Save your money and Find a reputed school. What is portrayed on the website is not what u get at all. It's a joke nothing else.

Degree: Technical and Scientific Communication
Graduation Year: 2012

UW-Stout is a wonderful balance of hands-on learning, niche majors, and small class sizes in a delightful town in western Wisconsin. I appreciated the practical approach to teaching/learning as opposed to focusing on the theoretical side.

UW Stout is a great polytechnic school, but it was definitely too expensive.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

I attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout for my Bachelor's degree as well as my Master's degree. Stout is a fantastic school with amazing professors. I was so fortunate to have had small classroom sizes and a Stout issued laptop to keep current with the latest technology.

Degree: Advertising Design
Graduation Year: 2015

The campus is quite small, but ideal for someone who is looking forward to living this lifestyle for several years. Faculties and staff are relatively helpful and friendly. I am currently enrolled in the Entertainment Design program with a concentration in Comics and Sequential Art. The art and design faculties are knowledgeable and make themselves available for outside class student appointments. Incoming art students are required to take fundamental art and design classes, which prepares them for higher level courses. Art critiques are done often and professors encourage their students to discuss projects and make aesthetic suggestions. It is important to take these courses with an open mind; be open to trying new art-making methods and receiving constructive criticism about your work.
