Industry Affiliate Group

The Department of Computer Science is proud to be affiliated with select industry partners who not only support and recruit our students but provide opportunities for collaborative work. Becoming an industry affiliate will bring improved ties with both the student body and academic community with a variety of different ways to get involved.

Funds raised from the industry affiliate scheme are incredibly valued and are used for academic sponsorship to attract, reward, retain and develop our best students via bursaries and scholarships. We are also able to support students suffering hardship.

In addition to joining the Affiliate Group, companies are able to make a donation in addition to the basic membership. These additional donations may reflect the amount of interaction you have had with the department and also savings made from other recruitment activities. We are able to use additional donations to further support the infrastructure and facilities available to students.
