Program Overview


The Industrial Affiliate Membership Program serves as a gateway for collaboration between the Computer Science Department and its Affiliate partners, so that the partner can engage in all three aspects of the University’s mission: connecting students with the next step beyond school, educating the students, and introducing innovative research results.

Affiliate funds are primarily used to support various student activities including sponsorship of the Grace Hopper Conference, funding of the Outstanding Student Awards, and financing student groups events.
