Good Day Milwaukee Engineers,

This past year, we celebrated a history steeped in excellence, innovation and an endless, enthusiastic pursuit of discovery that expands the boundaries of knowledge.  Our 50 years of achievement is the foundation for 50 years forward. Milwaukee Engineers: we have just begun.

Now more than ever people are looking to engineers to change the world – to solve our most pressing problems. Demand for our engineers and research contributions continues to grow.

We enjoyed many good times this past year. Please continue to engage with us as we look forward to our next 50 years. There are abundant opportunities from working with students on your company’s next innovation through our Product Realization program, to hosting student interns and co-ops, recruiting students at one of our annual Industry Expos, judging or sponsoring our Poster Competition or running on our team at the Panther Prowl. Check our website for information and updates.

Finally, you can always invest in the next generation of Milwaukee Engineers. Every dollar you give — whether designated for faculty research, facility updates or scholarships — touches a student in very important ways. Your online gift is appreciated. Contact Jean Opitz to learn about other ways to invest in our future.

Thank you for a great 50th Anniversary Celebratory Year! Cheers to 50 more.

  • What advice do you have for students just starting their careers?

    Focus on doing excellent engineering work in the beginning. Get motivated by knowing the impact of your work on the business. Intentionally balance work and life outside of work from the get-go.
