IAP was developed in 2004 to improve the computer science department's relationships with industry. That is, to improve our knowledge of industry needs and practices to better help us prepare and place our students, and to foster research collaborations.

We are eager to provide opportunities for industry to learn about the exciting activities in computer science at Texas A&M. We propose to do this through 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.

If you would like more information about this program, please contact Taffie Behringer, IAP Administrator, by e-mail or call (979)845-5275. For Benefits of Membership, see IAP Charter (pdf file). To fill out the membership form, see IAP Membership (pdf file).
