Corporate Affiliates Program

Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) 2017-18

Right when your company needs it the most, computing talent is scarce. The good news is that the College of Computing at Georgia Tech can supply precisely the talent you need to fuel your company’s future. Our undergraduate programs are experiencing record enrollments, and that means a growing stream of new graduates from a school ranked No. 5 in 2016 by the Times Higher Education/Wall Street Journal.

The College’s Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) offers advantages to help you improve your competitive position among recruiters. By partnering with us, you will strengthen and widen your recruiting pipeline through increased awareness among our students and young alumni. The Dean will, in turn, deploy your unrestricted partnership contributions to advance the College’s strategic priorities, thus sustaining our efforts to develop the computing talent that is in such high demand by industry leaders.
