College of Engineering Webpage Accessibility

The College of Engineering website follows the current University of Wisconsin-Madison policy governing World Wide Web accessibility. Some of the webpages contain links to files that require plug-ins or alternative pages; in those cases, the same webpage also contains a link to the plug-in or alternative webpage. The person listed for "content" is usually the best source for other types of alternative formats. On the UW-Madison College of Engineering department homepages, send a request to the department email address listed on the page. The webmaster@engr.wisc.edu can also assist.

Comments for improving accessibility of the site are welcome. Send them to webmaster@engr.wisc.edu.
