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’s 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, monitor slides and flyers. Members may gain further recognition by having their jobs posted through direct emails and flyers. 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 spring IAP meeting, and the 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. At the spring IAP meeting, members have another opportunity to attend two lunches, one with students and one with faculty. The evening of the first day of the meeting, IAP members sit with their scholarship recipients during the CSE spring banquet which had over 500 attendees in 2019. The banquet concludes with a dance for all to enjoy.

*Due to COVID-19 precautions, some benefits may not be available or may be altered.

Industry Capstone Program 

This is a separate program and is not included in IAP membership. 

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.

Afterhours rooms may be reserved (afterhours during career fair weeks are reserved for IAP members). All CSE events may be listed on the CSE Events of the Week. Additionally, CSE student organizations may be contacted to host a talk or event.


If you would like more information about this program, post a job or schedule an Information Session or Tech Talk, please contact the IAP Coordinator, Taffie Behringer, at 979-845-5275.
