Industrial Affiliates Program

The Industrial Affiliates Program (IAP) is a group of industry representatives who have a professional interest in the well-being of the Texas A&M University Department of Computer Science and Engineering and are willing to help us form and achieve our goals.

The purpose of IAP, developed in 2004, is to improve relationships between the department and industry and to improve the department’s knowledge of industry needs and practices. It also keeps industrial affiliates informed about the department’s research and teaching goals, helps the department better prepare students for real-world careers, assists the placement of students, and makes department/industry collaborations more likely. The department seeks to improve our knowledge of industry needs and practices to better help us prepare and place our students and to foster research collaborations.

We provide opportunities for industry to learn about the exciting activities in computer science at Texas A&M through department and classroom events, speaking opportunities, tours of the varied research labs, viewing cutting-edge research, talking one-on-one with faculty and students, and learning about the many benefits of partnering with us through this important program
