Partners in Industry

UC Santa Cruz is collaborating with industry partners including Cisco Systems, Google, SanDisk, Amazon, Veritas, Toshiba, and others to create new opportunities in research and education for Silicon Valley.

For the past five years, the Baskin School of Engineering has offered undergraduate students the opportunity to work on real-world problems faced by Silicon Valley companies through the Corporate Sponsored Senior Project Program. Students get a unique opportunity to experience working on projects that involve design, budgets, deadlines, teamwork, and reviews with their corporate team mentor.

Through the development of new creative research partnerships, Silicon Valley-oriented research centers of excellence, student research programs, and effective knowledge transfer the UC Santa Cruz Silicon Valley Campus will bring a new level of engagement between UC’s unparalleled depth and breadth of excellence and Silicon Valley communities of innovation.
