Engagement, Recognition, Recruiting

As the demand for computing talent dramatically increases, so does the department’s undergraduate enrollment and its number of outstanding graduates. The Department of Computer Science and Engineering's (CSE) Industrial Affiliates Program (IAP) provides opportunities to engage CSE students, promote your brand and gain recognition for your company. Additional benefits for our IAP members include invitations to speak in the classroom, members-only access to the CSE student résumé bank and company-named scholarships.

The key to successful recruiting is engagement. Engage students face to face through your tabling events, corporate days, tech talks, coffee chats, socials and other events your company hosts. Only IAP members’ CSE events are promoted throughout the department, including direct emails and monitor slides. Members may gain further recognition by having their jobs directly emailed to our CSE students. A dedicated staff member can assist with your planning and strategizing to further enhance and maximize your recruiting investment.


IAP events are another great way to interact with students: the IAP Recruiting Event and CSE-Only Career Fair, the January and March IAP Industry Days, and our spring banquet. All IAP events are exclusive to IAP members and provide unique opportunities for student interaction.

The fall IAP Recruiting Event provides an opportunity for one-on-one meetings with students. It consists of resume reviews, mock interviews and lunches. In 2019, the CSE-Only Career Fair had over 750 CSE students in attendance. The spring IAP Industry Days will increase members visibility with CSE students by connecting, informing and recruiting our students during this meet and greet event. That evening after the March Industry Day, members are invited to sit with their scholarship recipients during the CSE spring banquet, which had over 500 attendees in 2019. This is an evening of enjoying one another’s company and having a great meal.

Below is a list of our current IAP members.

Industry Capstone Program 

This is a separate program and is not included in IAP membership; however, IAP members do receive a sponsorship discount.

Consider sponsoring a capstone project to assess and recruit student talent. Your company representative would mentor one or more teams of creative seniors to develop innovative solutions for approved projects in areas such as data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cybersecurity, e-commerce, human-computer interaction and more.

Sponsorship is a great branding opportunity to inform students about the types of projects and technologies used at your company. For more information, including the discounted rate we offer IAP members, visit the Industry Capstone Program webpage or contact Pauline Wade

If IAP is not a fit

Non-IAP CSE jobs may be posted on the CSE student job listserv. We encourage all companies to post their jobs on the Texas A&M University Career Center’s website.

After-hours rooms may be reserved (after-hours during career fair weeks are reserved for IAP members), and CSE student organizations may be contacted to host a talk or event.


If you would like more information about this program (including the cost of each membership level – Platinum, Gold, Silver and for government/nonprofit, Bronze), post a job or schedule an Information Session or Tech Talk, please contact the IAP coordinator, Taffie Behringer, at 979-845-5275.
