UW-Milwaukee notes it is much more than buildings and books – rather, it’s  a community inspired by history and motivated by vision. Its leadership, collaboration, passion and vision are intended to  propel its students and faculty  toward greater heights in research, student achievement and community engagement. UW-Milwaukee offers a uniquely relevant learning experience, educating more Wisconsin residents than any university in the world and recruiting a growing population of international students and faculty. As the most diverse institution in the University of Wisconsin System, it is a learning destination for nearly 28,000 students.

The process of creating knowledge is at the center of economic and social vitality. It’s also a key part of UWM’s mission as one of only two public research universities in Wisconsin.

Offering the largest number of doctoral degree programs in the metro area, UWM is training the next generation of innovators, while working to take  its discoveries to the marketplace.

About Us



UWM’s College of Engineering & Applied Science is a dynamic research institution with award-winning faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and established business connections that provide context for its work.

One of only two doctorate-granting institutions in the state of Wisconsin, UW-Milwaukee’s location offers unique benefits to engineering students and faculty alike. Six Fortune 500 companies’ international headquarters are located within easy driving distance of the university – as are many leading manufacturers’ facilities.

The largest of UWM's schools and colleges, L&S curriculum spans all of the areas that are traditionally included in a liberal arts education: Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences. Every L&S student graduates prepared for work or graduate school with a well-rounded foundation including practical knowledge in their chosen field and lifelong skills in critical thinking, problem solving and communication.




The Office of Research facilitates the creation of new knowledge and the development of innovative solutions by supporting research across the sciences, arts and humanities that enhances the mission of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and spurs economic growth.

Responsible for the administration of research activity, oversight of research policy and compliance with federal and state mandates at UWM, the Office of Research provides pre- and post-award administrative support for sponsored projects, encourages the transfer of technology to the marketplace and develops sound policy that protects investigators, subjects and the institution.



Department Information

Civil & Environmental Engineering
Civil Engineering is a profession that deals with the infrastructure of society and impacts your everyday life. From the roads and bridges you use every day to the drinking water that comes out of your tap at home, civil engineers work to develop safe, efficient and sustainable ways to continually improve our infrastructure.
Computer Science
Computer science is the study and design of computer systems, networks, software and computing techniques. But more importantly, it is a dynamic field with a growing impact on the world today. A report on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce forecasts 51% of STEM occupations will be computer occupations by 2018.
Electrical Engineering
Electrical engineering graduates pursue careers in fields such as energy generation and transmission, renewable energy, power electronics, bio-imaging and devices, signal and image processing, communications, optical and photonic circuits and devices, controls and automation and many other areas.
Materials Science & Engineering
The Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department provides a broad, technical, hands-on education in the design, control, operation, evaluation and implementation of systems and processes for service and manufacturing industries as well as government organizations.

Everything we use is made of some material or combination of materials. Materials science is involved with all the processes that turn natural resources into useful products that impact all facets of our economy such as aerospace, electronics, transportation, communication, construction, recreation, entertainment and environment.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is one of the most general engineering fields. The engineer has the freedom to deal with virtually any aspect of the multi-faceted engineering process such as design, development, analysis, production and testing. The broad nature of the field also provides opportunities to work in various areas of interest ranging from energy conversion or environmental control to the production of transportation and construction equipment.
Biological Sciences
The Department of Biological Sciences is the principal UW-Milwaukee life sciences department,  supporting internationally-recognized research in diverse areas of biology from molecular and cell biology and microbiology to ecology and conservation biology. A commitment to research excellence is the foundation of the Department's high-quality educational programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. The department also provides scientific expertise that benefits the Southeastern Wisconsin community in several ways, including health and life sciences, business, industry, education and the public.
Chemistry and Biochemistry
The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry is a research-intensive, mid-size department, where graduate and undergraduate students receive advanced training and carry out cutting-edge, trans-disciplinary research beyond the confines of chemistry in physical, material and life sciences and in science education. The program allows for close interaction of faculty, staff and students, where team effort is valued to advanced knowledge.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Department of Geosciences offers B.A., B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in a wide range of Geosciences sub-disciplines. Research is conducted  on strata exposed from the Arctic to Antarctica, and they lead field trips from the Great Lakes to the Caribbean.
Mathematical Sciences
The Department Mathematical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is home to an active community of teachers, scholars, undergraduates and graduate students. In addition to most traditional areas of Pure and Applied Mathematics, the department contains all UWM programs in Actuarial Science and Atmospheric Science. The department offers Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral studies in all of these areas, in addition to several interdisciplinary programs. Established in 1963, the PhD in Mathematics is the original doctoral program at UWM.
