A career in the College of Engineering

Join us in the College of Engineering! Here, you’ll find all the usual components of a comprehensive university campus, all located right here. But UW-Madison is different, and our campus is a very unique and special place to work. We’re a diverse college full of innovative, incredibly talented people who enjoy what they do—and we are committed not only to the success of our students, but supporting our faculty and staff, in their efforts, too.

We encourage collaboration and trans-disciplinary research. We involve young students in research because we believe it better prepares them for their own professional lives. We seek to continuously improve what we do. And we strive to cultivate a collaborative, supportive environment that encourages, celebrates and rewards your success. Apply for a position here today!

We are a growing, thriving, top-ranked college in Madison, Wisconsin—one of the most fantastic cities in the country. We compete for the best students. We actively engage in educational innovation, and we seek creative new approaches to and directions in our research.

We place a high priority on delivering a world-class education that prepares our students to be successful, and to be leaders—and our faculty and staff weave their own research into their teaching, creating an environment rich with discourse and new ideas that benefit and inspire everyone.

We value fundamental research but also create advances that ultimately manifest themselves in products, projects and settings worldwide. And we seek ways to extend our knowledge and discoveries beyond our classrooms and our campus so that the citizens of our world can reap the benefits of what we do.

We want you to join us. Visit the UW-Madison employment opportunities database to view the faculty and staff positions we have available, and apply today!


Beyond traditional benefits—including a robust retirement plan and excellent health insurance options, among others (also visit the college human resources website for more information)—working in the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering affords you access to outstanding facilities for both teaching and research. We reward creative, innovative thinkers. We want you to thrive here, and we are committed to providing you the support you need to succeed, as well as a positive, collaborative, supportive environment in which you can grow professionally and explore new ideas.
