IBM Recognized as a Super ePartner

As a result of a substantial unrestricted cash donation, the department of computer science at NC State University is very proud to recognize IBM as its newest Super ePartner.

Long a strong and active corporate partner with the university, IBM has donated well over $6M to various NC State colleges, departments and programs over the years, including numerous substantial equipment grants, faculty awards, and research grants to the department of computer science

Consistently ranking among the top consumers of NC State new grad talent, IBM holds the distinction of being the #1 employer of computer science graduates at NC State.

Since its inception, IBM executives have been actively involved in the department's Strategic Advisory Board.IBM representatives have also worked very closely with our faculty on the evolution of our curriculum to meet the ever-changing needs of the global business community, including the recent launch of a new curriculum initiative in Services Sciences, Management and Engineering (SSME).

 The ePartners Program provides a framework for developing and nurturing meaningful collaborative relationships between the global business community and NC State's Department of Computer Science. Its primary focus is to foster ongoing communication and interaction between students, faculty and our corporate partners, to help shape the department's future. Funding and support generated by the program allow our department to continue to grow in emerging areas of computer science technology while providing the highest quality education for our students.

In recognition of their generous support, our ePartners have access to an extensive portfolio of engagement and interaction options across several recognition levels, all designed to meet their specific needs and interests.
