EECS Industrial Partners

For over half a century, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California at Berkeley has been at the leading edge of research that has led to revolutionary innovations in semiconductor and MEMS devices, design technology, computer architecture, operating systems and databases, and wired and wireless networking. Berkeley graduates are at the core of today's Information Technology industry.

EECS's industrial programs were established to encourage cooperation between members of industry and the department:

  • to facilitate faster transfer of research results to industry

  • to help keep research focused on problems that interest industry

  • increase access by industry to research publications, students and faculty

  • encourage industrial gifts/grants to support educational and research activities at Berkeley
