The Industrial Affiliates Program fosters relationships between the UW–Madison Department of Computer Sciences and industrial partners. Our goal is a two-way sharing of information and resources for mutual development. The program provides a forum for active exchange between your organization and Wisconsin Computer Sciences.
Members of the Computer Sciences department—both faculty and students—gain a greater awareness of what goes on in your organization through the Affiliates Program. Similarly, you will gain greater familiarity with our cutting-edge research, students and instructional programs.
Benefits of participating in the program are numerous. They include recruiting, access to faculty and research results, visibility and an annual report containing a research summary. See our benefits page for more information.
To maintain an active and vibrant program, we require support from our affiliates. See membership costs.
There are also specialized Affiliates Programs in the fields of computer architecture, databases and optimization; membership in any of those specialty programs automatically confers membership in the general affiliates program. Please note that the cost to participate in the specialty programs differs from the general program.
