Our college is just a building without the people who to teach, inspire, collaborate and share their enthusiasm for engineering and computer science every day.

We know that being smart, having state-of-the-art resources and knowing about cutting-edge technology is not enough without having the businesses, research foundations and community partners that help bring ideas to life.

People are at the heart of what we do, so it makes sense that building relationships with students, alumni, business leaders and people in our community is important to us.

We do our best every day to work hard, establish credibility, build trust and communicate with our partners so that together we can achieve big goals.

Corporate Partnerships

When our faculty and researchers collaborate with industry, everyone wins.

The Connected Systems Institute (CSI) is an example of a center of excellence on campus at UWM that accelerates innovation by working with tools that support the development of advanced manufacturing processes.

The future looks brighter when we work together.

Milwaukee engineers are changing the world.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (’90 MS Computer Science) and his wife Anu donated $2 million to create the Fund for Diversity in Tech Education at UWM.

The fund will support 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.
Internships and co-ops provide important hands-on opportunities for our students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real-world scenarios.

Businesses also have the opportunity to meet our in-demand engineering and computer science students through career fairs in the fall and spring.
Career Services
There are many ways to support our students, researchers and future students at the UWM College of Engineering & Applied Science.

You can make a difference by providing financial support through scholarships, research support or sponsorship of one of our college’s many events such as the Milwaukee Engineering Research Conference.
