Faculty are not the only people conducting important research at UW-Milwaukee. Students in the College of Engineering & Applied Science benefit from UWM’s standing as a top, R1 research university, even at the undergraduate level. Our college focuses on the following key areas of research:
All students are encouraged to participate in the college’s annual Student Research Poster Competition, a signature event that gives undergraduates and graduate students the opportunity to learn how to create a professional academic research poster to demonstrate the findings from their research. This event provides students with valuable connections to industry judges and helps them to earn critical communication and presentation skills they need to pursue further research opportunities or a career after college.
We foster a culture of faculty-undergraduate research collaboration at UW-Milwaukee where the Support for Undergraduate Fellows (SURF) program provides hourly financial support and valuable hands-on experience with work alongside the college’s top researchers.
Graduate students who pursue an engineering MS at our college will get even more hands-on research experience by working with one of our highly acclaimed faculty to take a deeper dive into a specific area of interest in either Biomedical, Civil, Electrical and Computer, Energy, Mechanics, Industrial and Systems, Manufacturing, Materials, or Mechanical engineering.
Students who wish to continue to highest academic achievement through a PhD will take their research work to the next level to focus on one of the following concentrated areas of study: Biomedical, Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Industrial, Materials or Mechanical.
Some faculty members have financial support for research assistants or project assistants as part of their research funding. Faculty determine the duties and select who they want from among current students and admitted applicants. Both graduate and undergraduate students may be considered for these positions that pay a semester, academic year, or full-year stipend, have remission of tuition and offer health insurance. For more information about assistantships, please contact your program.
