Tight-Knit Community. Unparalleled Location. Impressive Outcomes.
UWM’s College of Engineering & Applied Science leverages top research university credentials with Wisconsin’s career-building location and brings together a close-knit, supportive community of engineering and computer science students and faculty. Strong industry partnerships, dynamic research opportunities and a rich and rigorous academic foundation are a few of the reasons our students are sought out in their fields.
Why Choose the College of Engineering & Applied Science?
95.1% of our graduates launch their careers or continue their education upon graduation.*
Whether a summer internship or co-op during the academic year or undergraduate research with top faculty, hands-on, career-building experiences outside of the classroom assure our engineering and computer science students are well prepared when they graduate. Our dedicated career services department and two engineering and computer science career fairs a year help facilitate great outcomes.

Engineering and Computer Science Programs That Stand Out
Microsoft CEO and UWM Alum Satya Nadella and His Wife Anu Donated $2M to UWM to Support Diversity in Tech
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (’90 MS Computer Science) and his wife Anu donated $2 million to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in June 2021 to create the Fund for Diversity in Tech Education at UWM. The fund supports efforts to recruit, retain and graduate undergrads from marginalized and underserved communities, preparing them with the skills to pursue careers in computer science, data science and information technology.
