Purdue University - Department of Computer Science - Program

The Corporate Partners Program

The Corporate Partners Program (CPP) is designed to foster close communication and promote mutually beneficial relationships between select corporations and the Department of Computer Science. This cooperation reduces recruiting costs by providing members with increased visibility and communication, interaction with students who may become future employees, interaction with faculty who are experts in relevant technical fields, and executive involvement. Partnerships provide the Department of Computer Science diversification of funding sources and access to modern instrumentation, as well as professional resources in tune to marketplace needs. It is a true partnership, where both sides benefit.

The CS Corporate Partners Program offers three levels of participation.

Premier: Annual contribution of $25,000

Partner: Annual contribution of $10,000

Friend: Annual contribution of $5,000

The semi-annual meetings held each fall and spring provide opportunities to participate in curriculum development and networking with students, faculty, and corporate peers.
