Engage with UNC Computer Science

The Department of Computer Science at UNC-Chapel Hill was one of the first independent computer science departments established in the United States. Founded in 1964 by Turing Award winner Dr. Frederick P. Brooks Jr., the department has almost 1,000 students in its programs and boasts award-winning faculty who are recognized internationally for their groundbreaking research and expertise.

With a well-rounded liberal arts foundation provided by one of the most respected universities in the world, UNC CS produces sought-after graduates who have a focus on using computer science to solve today’s problems and to build a better future.

The Corporate Partners Program supports student activities and offers forward-thinking companies access to tomorrow’s leaders in computer science today, through recruitment events, branding opportunities and participation in on-campus initiatives.

Access

From premium recruiting opportunities to Partners-only events early in the academic year, to one-on-one meetings with senior department leadership for strategic planning, Corporate Partners have exclusive opportunities to engage with some of the most talented, diverse and well-rounded computer science students in the world. Partner-level support includes resumes of computer science majors, and Premium Partnership includes membership on the Employer Advisory Council, which helps to inform the department about industry trends.

Visibility

Competition for UNC CS graduates is fierce. Graduates have their pick of employers nationwide, and starting salaries average $75,000. Corporate Partners have an advantage through prominent logo placement and branding at events, in the department and online. Executive and Premium Partner branding is featured throughout the year at student club events, including events hosted by Women in Computer Science, Blacks and LatinX in Computer Science, eSports, Cybersecurity and other clubs.

Partnership

Corporate Partners build fruitful relationships with the best and brightest at UNC CS through sponsorship of student activities. Hackathon sponsorship provides access to resumes of participants from all over the country, and gets Partner technology into the hands of future developers through mini-competitions and swag giveaways. Sponsorship of events that attract women and underserved minorities furthers corporate diversity goals and creates an inclusive candidate pool for recruiting.
