Who We Are

Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is an academic institution intrinsically tied to the real world—a confluence of industry knowledge, work ethic and an enduring desire to know more. The university offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering, computer science, machine learning, user experience, construction management, actuarial science, business and nursing. With about 3,000 students, faculty and staff, MSOE is large enough for big opportunities and small enough for personal attention.

A Small University Dedicated to Achieving Big Things

MSOE is a supportive environment where everyone is valued. Our method of learning by doing is our distinction: it is how we teach, how we learn and how we serve. Faculty bring their real-world experience into the classroom, and small class sizes keep instructors in close contact with students. MSOE’s top priority is serving our students. By joining our community, you are building the leaders of tomorrow.

Our Mission

MSOE is the university of choice for those seeking an inclusive community of experiential learners driven to solve the complex challenges of today and tomorrow. We are united by our six values—collaboration, excellence, inclusion, innovation, integrity and stewardship—which represent the core of our campus culture. Under the leadership of Dr. John Walz, MSOE has embarked on an ambitious strategic plan, Extraordinary Together, that propels the institution forward. MSOE fosters a welcoming and inclusive environment where diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) are central to all campus initiatives and guided by our DEIB Strategic Plan.

The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) department at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) seeks applicants to fill one or more software engineering (SE) / computer science (CS) faculty positions at any rank to support growth in established undergraduate computing programs and/or to support a newly developed minor in Cybersecurity.

Candidates with expertise in any field of SE or CS are encouraged to apply, and candidates with relevant expertise in one or more of the following areas are especially desired: software engineering, cybersecurity, networking, design patterns, DevOps, human-machine interfaces, AR/VR, applied machine learning, and databases. Applicants must have proficiency in oral and written communication and are expected to have a doctorate by the beginning date of the appointment. Industry experience is highly valued by the EECS department.

The vision of the EECS Department at MSOE is to be recognized for encouraging and supporting all our students to achieve their full potential. We expect and reward a strong primary commitment to excellence in teaching. All faculty, and especially junior faculty in EECS are supported through established mentoring and collaborative pedagogical development. Faculty share course development materials and coordinate efforts to leverage shared expertise and perspectives to optimize the learning experience for students.

MSOE also values a broad range of scholarly activities including applied industrial research technical research, and computer science education research. Faculty enjoy small class sizes, hands-on laboratories, and support for sustained professional development. The department maintains strong relationships with numerous businesses and academic institutes, which guide applied projects, undergraduate research, and curriculum development. 

Significant investments have been made to support MSOE’s academic mission including the construction of the $34M Dwight and Dian Diercks Computational Science Hall that houses the SE and CS programs. Diercks Hall is also home to Rosie, MSOE’s supercomputer, which is an NVIDIA GPU-accelerated AI supercomputer with three NVIDIA DGX-1s, two NVIDIA DGX H100 servers, and 20 servers each with four NVIDIA T4 GPUs. The nodes are joined together by Mellanox networking fabric and share 300 TB of network-attached storage.
