The Industrial Affiliates Program (IAP) brings industry closer to the students and the faculty of our department. As a member company of our IAP, you can raise your visibility within the department, engage with our students, develop close ties with the faculty, network with other member companies, and contribute to maintaining our excellence in education and research. Contact University Career Services at or visit for additional campus-wide employer branding and talent sourcing opportunities.

Your membership fee will support the mission of the department in important ways: to maintain and expand the resources we need in order to better educate and mentor our students, to provide them with newer opportunities to further their academic, research, and career objectives, to reward them for demonstrating excellence in this pursuit, and to help them build a vibrant and productive community.

You can sign up for one of three levels of membership: Affiliate, Associate, and Partner. Membership is annual, starting September 1, at the start of the fall semester. To become a member, please fill the sign up form.

Feel free to contact Dr. Sesh Venugopal for any questions regarding the benefits of membership. If you are a member, please email our program administrator Doris Allen if you have any administrative questions.
