Let's Work Together

At UW-Stout, we have a community of leaders who can lend their knowledge and skills beyond teaching in the classroom. We are a vibrant group of problem-solvers, learners, and action-oriented experts in our fields. With these skills and state-of-the-art equipment at our disposal, we want to connect with industry and community partners. Whether you're looking to jumpstart an event, develop a product, or bring a business idea to fruition, we would love to work with you.

Our Polytechnic Advantage

Unlike purely liberal arts-focused institutions, UW-Stout has the practical advantage of being a Polytechnic University. This unique designation means that our students and faculty go beyond theoretical knowledge to learn real-world skills. It's one reason why our graduates enjoy a 98.7% rate of finding employment or continuing education. For you as an industry partner, you can have confidence that we have invaluable real-world experience and skills to contribute to your project. Just ask one of the dozens of companies who have partnered with us in the past.
