Corporate Access Programs

The External Relations Group (XRG) of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Department fosters close cooperation between industry and the Department through the Corporate Access Program (CAP). This sponsorship program allows companies to have exclusive access to EECS student recruitment opportunities. We also offer companies opportunities to support underrepresented students through CAP Diversity Recruitment Opportunities. For more information please see
