In addition to serving as an engine of translational research and education in the computational science and engineering, iCSE will administer an Industry Members and Affiliates Program (IMAP) that will actively engage industry partners across a broad spectrum of CSE areas. Our goal is a two-way sharing of information and resources for mutual development. The basic benefits to the CSE industry members are as follows:

  1. Recruiting for summer jobs, internships and full-time positions. We will also schedule on-site interview dates for our affiliates, which includes providing conference room space, announcing the dates electronically and in appropriate classes, collecting resumes, scheduling technical talks, providing space for informational meetings or receptions.
  2. Access to faculty and research results. CSE faculty will make itself available to affiliates for discussions of our research, students, curriculum and other related topics. Faculty visits of affiliate sites to make research presentations and student internships.
  3. Access to research reports which have not been yet published in the open literature. Periodically, CSE will hold one- to two-day seminars to review current research. Invitations to these seminars will be provided only to members of our IMAP. 
  4. Access to an open source software for internal use and an opportunity (fee-based) to commercialize technologies.

Membership Levels

The iCSE industrial members and affiliates program has developed three membership levels to provide different level of engagements. In order to foster ambitious collaborative projects with stable funding and sustained productivity, we encourage companies to become members for a period of at least three years.

The proposed annual membership fees (modeled after CEEC) are as follows:

  • Charter Members: $250,000
  • Members: $125,000
  • Affiliates: $25,000
