Schultz_Joshua.jpgDr. Joshua A. Schultz has been named Director of STEM at Milwaukee School of Engineering. Schultz’s primary roles are to provide leadership in the area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to help increase student interest in STEM-related fields and to oversee MSOE’s pre-college programs, including Science Bowl, Summer Programs, Opportunity Conferences, FIRST Robotics, Engineering Discovery Days and others.

Schultz graduated from MSOE in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering and master’s degree in structural engineering. While working as a structural intern with Stutzki Engineering Inc., he continued his studies at Marquette University where he earned his Ph.D. in civil engineering in 2013. Schultz was a structural engineer for Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP in Chicago, and lecturer in the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department at MSOE.

What began as a temporary exhibition at the Grohmann Museum has again turned into a permanent gift to the collection. Thomas H. Garver has donated nine of O. Winston Link’s photographic prints to the museum, five of which are signed by the photographer.link41.jpg

“On the heels of an extremely successful and well-received exhibition of O. Winston Link’s photography, Mr. Garver’s gift significantly increases the scope and quality of the Grohmann Museum’s photographic holdings,” said James Kieselburg, Grohmann Museum director.

Garver donated the photos to the museum following the exhibition Trains that Passed in the Night: Railroad Photographs of O. Winston Link (Grohmann Museum, 2014). The exhibition, organized by Garver and the Center for Railroad Photography and Art in Madison, featured 36 framed, original prints by Link, a Brooklyn, New York, native and commercial photographer who became well-recognized for his complex images of factory and industrial plant interiors. For Link, the steam railroad was a vital ingredient to “the good life’ in America, an essential part of the fabric of our lives. It is this quality—of life, not machinery—which he captures so artfully in his photographs.

Link’s photographs showcase the final years of steam railroading on the Norfolk & Western Railway, the last major railroad in America to operate exclusively with steam power. They are regarded as one of the best records of this long vanished type of locomotion, yet the broad appeal of Link’s photographs is derived not so much from the images of the steam locomotives themselves, but from the way in which their inclusion expresses the photographer’s deeply felt respect for the quality of life that the steam railroad reflected and supported for so many years in the United States.

The Grohmann Museum is home to the Man at Work collection, which comprises more than 1,000 paintings and sculptures dating from 1580 to the present. They reflect a variety of artistic styles and subjects that document the evolution of organized work: from farming and mining to trades such as glassblowing and seaweed gathering. The Grohmann Museum welcomes visitors to three floors of galleries where a core collection is displayed as well as themed exhibitions. The museum is owned by MSOE, an independent university with about 2,600 students. MSOE offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the engineering, business, mathematics and nursing fields.

Building on its tradition of delivering high-quality management programs, and preparing engineers and technical professionals for advancement to leadership, Milwaukee School of Engineering has launched several new master’s degree programs and added options for online courses.

Master of Business Administration

The MSOE MBA is built on an innovative course model that integrates traditional and new MBA content in a way that mirrors application. This allows the learner to apply the content of class-based case analysis in project-based field experiences during which leadership competencies are shaped and assessed. The program is available entirely online or through MSOE’s blended Internet format (alternate weeks of face-to-face class sessions and online delivery). Students can attend on a part-time or full-time basis.

MBA in STEM Leadership

Among the first of its kind in the world, the MSOE MBA in STEM Leadership prepares STEM teacher-leaders to develop and support initiatives to improve student learning outcomes in STEM fields. The degree blends STEM education techniques, business knowledge, and leadership skills to provide PK-12 teachers and college instructors with the capabilities needed to drive higher levels of student achievement in STEM fields. The program is available entirely online or through MSOE’s blended Internet format. Students attend on a part-time basis.

Online M.S. in Engineering and M.S. in Engineering Management

MSOE’s established MSE and MSEM degrees are now available entirely online. The interdisciplinary MSE program has a primary emphasis in the areas of electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Students develop their engineering knowledge and skills in an effort to enhance the productivity of the practicing engineer. The MSEM program combines a student’s technical background with a core business curriculum, preparing them to rise to decision-making leadership positions. Both programs also are still available in traditional classroom format or through MSOE’s blended Internet format.

The addition of these new programs and the previously announced MBA in Education Leadership and M.S. in Nursing: Health Care Systems Management brings the total number of graduate degree programs at MSOE to 13.
