Make a Gift. Change the World.

Our students, faculty and alumni make a difference every day in research centers, labs, classrooms, extra-curriculars, internships and domestic and international engineering careers. We call them Milwaukee Engineers. Milwaukee Engineers bring fresh water to developing countries. For stroke patients, they restore the ability to touch. They cure diseases once thought incurable and are reducing our global carbon footprint. Milwaukee Engineers are making workplaces safer and reducing health care costs for employers.  Milwaukee Engineers are fueling the economy with new jobs and innovative business start-ups, talented employees and breakthrough ideas.

Limited only by the infinite imagination of our faculty and students, possibilities for a better life are endless. For you, changing the world is easy with a gift to UWM’s College of Engineering & Applied Science. Support Milwaukee Engineers and make what was once unimaginable reality.
