The Opportunities in Engineering Conference

The College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison is hosting a three-day graduate recruitment event known as “The Opportunities in Engineering Conference,” scheduled for November 4 through November 6, 2010.

The conference gives selected students an opportunity to hear faculty research presentations, tour laboratories, meet with current graduate students and individually with faculty in the students area of interest, and tour the city of Madison as well as the UW campus. All expenses including travel, housing, and food are paid in full by the College of Engineering (with the exception of food for Saturday and Sunday). We are particularly interested in identifying underrepresented candidates including women and students of color.

All applicants should be in their Junior or Senior year; students who have already completed a baccalaureate degree are also eligible. Application deadline is September 24, 2010.

Students are encouraged to apply on-line at: For more information on opportunities available at the University of Wisconsin, please refer students to the College of Engineering website at:
