91 companies to recruit engineers, computer scientists Thursday at UWM

MILWAUKEE _ Reflecting continued strong demand for engineers and computer scientists, 91 companies will be recruiting UW-Milwaukee students Thursday, March 1, at the College of Engineering & Applied Science Spring Industry Expo.

This marks the second consecutive year that attendance by hiring companies has increased, underscoring the market need for computer scientists and engineers. That area of the job market is expected to grow at least through 2024, according to the U.S.  Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“I consistently receive feedback from industry that they seek out our students for their abilities coupled with their strong work ethic. It’s an unbeatable combination,” said Juli Pickering, director of career services for the engineering college.

Companies registered to participate include some of Southeast Wisconsin’s largest and some new employers: Rockwell Automation, Foxconn, Komatsu Mining Corp., GRAEF, HUSCO International, Kohler, Briggs & Stratton, Milwaukee Tool, Modine Manufacturing Company and American Transmission Co.

Members of the media are welcome to attend. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Wisconsin Room of the UWM Student Union, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd.
