The UW-Madison College of Engineering shares expertise and data with industry and government through its research consortia.
Involving various faculty, researchers and industrial sponsors, the college consortia are formed to study specific technical areas. Companies may join these consortia by paying fees and participating in consortia activities. Members benefit through seeing work in progress, helping to set research directions, and interacting with faculty and students.
Many consortia have close relationships with college centers. College consortia, their sponsors and faculty contacts are listed on the following pages. (Sponsor lists are current as of June 2002.)
