From its founding well over a century ago, MSOE has actively engaged leaders of business and industry to guide the institution’s development.  The close and collaborative working relationship established that day has continued throughout MSOE’s history and has grown into a much broader relationship with our community. While each of MSOE’s arms into the community represents a different facet of our commitment, all work to the mutual benefit of our local and global communities as well as the university and its graduates.
