Overview

When UWM began its campus Research Growth Initiative in 2006, it identified several areas of research expertise that offered opportunities to connect with similar industry strengths in the Milwaukee area. Those fields include biomedical engineering and devices, and advanced materials and manufacturing. Since then, UWM has added dozens of new faculty members in these areas to its College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Plans for collaborative laboratories that would bring industry, academic and medical practice together near Wisconsin’s largest academic health cluster will both attract companies to the region and produce companies directly from the university.
