Support for Students

The UW-Madison College of Engineering is committed to establishing and nurturing partnerships with industry that enable us to advance the development of tomorrow’s leaders through education. By participating in our Employer Partner Program, your company can be part of this important process, which will allow you to engage more closely with our students and departments throughout the recruitment process.

Our CORPORATE PARTNERS PROGRAM supports students by providing the necessary resources for developing successful engineering leaders. Among those resources are career fairs; my ECS, our online recruiting system; and our Diversity Affairs Office. Not only do these resources provide an insight to the industry, they also help sustain long-term engagements for mutually beneficial goals.

Support for Students

We host two large, multi-day Career Connection events each academic year. During these fairs, engineering students seeking internships, co-op­erative experiences and full-time employment can learn about the work environment, find information about training programs, participate in interviews, and gain experience in a professional setting. These career fairs give you the opportunity to network with qualified students who are aiming to develop their professional degree through involvement with the industry.


myECS is our online recruiting system that is tailored to the needs of employers recruiting Engineering and related STEM majors. The system delivers interactive recruitment resources for employers, including searchable online resume books and the ability to post jobs, request on-campus interviews, register for career fairs, and other events. Students have free access to my ECS and utilize the system as their gateway into the industry. Here you can connect with students and maximize your recruitment capabilities.

Graphic of the DAO idea

The College of Engineering is committed to helping you recruit academically excellent and creative students who are diverse in gender, race, ethnicity and socioeconomic representation. The Diversity Affairs Office (DAO) upholds this objective by providing support for underrepresented undergraduate students in the college. This support comes in the form of scholarships, academic advising, professional and leadership development, and a strong mentoring community. By recruiting from the College, you are being immersed into our diverse community of gifted engineering students.

“We keep coming back to UW because the students have consistent skills and background knowledge.”

—Jessica Frommgen, Spectrum Brands
