Corporate Partners

Corporate Partners Program

The Corporate Partners Program provides an opportunity for a strategic partnership between your corporation and the A. James Clark School of Engineering. The program ensures high level access to the intellectual capital (students, faculty and research) of the Clark School while also serving as a gateway to research collaborations, campus facilities, and intellectual property licenses.

Funds generated through the program support recruitment and internship opportunities, scholarships, student activities (such as the annual all-School student picnic), competitions, awards, conferences and other programs that directly benefit students and faculty. A portion of your financial support may also be directed to the departments or diversity programs of your choice, maximizing your investment.

Each corporate partnership is unique and we work with our partners to determine an engagement plan that will best meet your short-term and long-term strategic goals. Our Corporate Partners are typically the most engaged and most visible companies at the Clark School. This high level of visibility creates brand awareness and recognition by students, faculty and the university community of your commitment to engineering education at the University of Maryland.
