UWM engineering and computer science students place a high value on their education and opportunities that will help them to succeed professionally. Many of them are first generation college students, others are returning to school after having gone directly into the workforce.
In addition to the variety of their background, the vast majority of our students work either part-time or full-time while pursuing their degree. These experiences have helped them develop a strong work ethic, a high level of professionalism, a commitment to excellence, and a realistic understanding of the demands of the world of work.
The University has made a commitment to provide a quality education to all students regardless of race, color, creed, religion, mental or physical disability, national origin, sexual orientation, age, sex or veteran's status. This commitment is reflected in our student body and services. It allows us to incorporate a wealth of perspectives into the classroom and enhances our students' ability to effectively work and communicate with people of diverse backgrounds. UWM is the global learning community for the Twenty-First Century.
