Corporate Connections

Innovation is our business.
Partner with us to make it yours.

The Corporate Connection is a joint program of the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois. It is a comprehensive program created to connect corporations with faculty and students at the forefront of engineering.

Both departments are consistently top-ranked nationally. More importantly, both are globally recognized by fellow educators and by industry. Graduates from CS and ECE are found in the strongest, most well-established companies in the field, as well as in the most innovative and nimble startups.

CS By The Numbers ECE By The Numbers

Connect with Students through your Corporate Connection Sponsorship

The Corporate Connection was designed to help companies get to the students they need to make their company great. Illinois students are the reason why our program remains among the top ranked in the country. In the classroom, in the research lab, and in industry—our students embody the innovative and hardworking spirit that is a well-recognized hallmark of Illinois students and alumni.

Corporate support for student projects and organizations is critical for helping these students continue to redefine the future of computing for all of us. Through corporate partnerships with our student organizations, companies establish personal connections with some of the most active and innovative members of our student body.
