CPP Web Portal
The CPP web portal allows students to register their CVs and for CPP members to browse them and advertise opportunities to students.
Our Corporate Partnership Programme (CPP) is designed to facilitate recruitment and other interactions between companies and students (including Industrial Placements, technical talks and prizes).
The CPP provides DoC students with the opportunity to benefit from our enhanced relationship with partner organisations by assisting students with their employment searches. In addition, any funds raised through the CPP will be used primarily for academic sponsorship to benefit students.
Alongside the programme, we run the Applications of Computing in Industry lecture series. This timetabled series of talks are given by our Corporate Partners and is designed to inform our students about how Computer Science is applied to meet business challenges.
If you'd like to join the Corporate Partnership Programme - as a member or benefactor - you can fill out this form and return it via email. Membership will begin from receipt of payment, you can view payment methods here.
