Please Join Our 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 provides 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. View a list of our current partners and contact Sally Luzader for details on how to join.
