The health of Wisconsin's economy depends on innovative, cost-effective solutions to industry problems. Teams of UW-Madison College of Engineering faculty, staff and students work hand in hand with Wisconsin industry to meet its challenges. Industrial partnerships are a strong component of our campus culture, and will continue to be vital as we all work together to grow Wisconsin's economic future.

In addition to solving industry problems, we are hard at work creating new knowledge that will also bring dollars into the state. In the fiscal year 2001-02, the college set its third consecutive record for annual research expenditures at more than $95 million. Engineering faculty continue to create new companies spun off of their research. And engineering faculty and staff made 116 patent disclosures to the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation in fiscal 2002, the largest number of disclosures from any UW-Madison school or college.

Whether it's creating new knowledge, starting new enterprises or applying new technology to existing problems, we will continue to be a strong partner At Work for Wisconsin.
