Engineering Excellence at Oshkosh Defense

At Oshkosh Defense, we specialize in innovative solutions for the military and commercial delivery vehicle markets. Our Global Technology Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, is powered by over 1,000 engineers. We design with the future in mind and every engineering decision centers around our mission to enable people who dedicate their lives to service to accomplish their mission and return home safely. 

Empowered by state-of-the-art technology and processes

Pioneering new ways to design, test, and refine technologies is the Oshkosh way of moving the industry forward and it’s never a choice between advanced technology or a vehicle designed for the extreme demands of combat operations.

The team relies on extensive testing and Soldier feedback to ensure exceptional performance that exceeds mission requirements. Developing physical prototype systems and vehicles allows us to get feedback from Warfighters and customers based on something they can touch, sit in, and operate. Oshkosh Defense engineers also use virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) prototypes to get feedback quickly in the early stages of the design process.

We are always looking for passionate and technically skilled engineers to add to our team.
