Partnership in Action

The Value of a Partnership with CCI

The College of Computing & Informatics' (CCI) is built upon culture of innovation and collaboration. Our Corporate Partnerships provide an important foundation to our multidisciplinary, experiential academic programs and applied research.

CCI’s strong, multi-faceted relationships with industry ensure that our students benefit from an industry-responsive curriculum, extraordinary opportunities for professional development, and increased access to the outstanding co-op and employment opportunities from every major industry.

Our Corporate Partners benefit from a range of programming options and events to directly engage with students and increase brand awareness and equity.

Career Networking Events

CCI hosts Career Networking Events in the spring and fall, providing a unique opportunity for CCI students and industry leaders to engage and network. This tech-focused event provides a relaxed atmosphere for CCI students and Corporate Partners to enjoy exclusive, personal engagement around co-ops and other professional opportunities. 

Professional Development and Industry Engagement

Our Corporate Partners lead tech talk sessions that focus on corporate culture, tech innovations, and professional development topics that help students prepare themselves for co-ops, interviews, and other professional opportunities. Recent topics have included building a personal brand, leveraging a professional network, how to write algorithms like a professional, and tips and tricks for digital interviews.

Senior Design Project

CCI's Senior Project is a multi-term capstone experience involving in-depth study and application of computing and informatics. Under the advisement of Corporate Partner industry stakeholders and CCI faculty, students work in teams to plan, design and implement applications to help solve real-world, industry challenges.
