UCL Computer Science is very keen to talk to interested companies and organisations wishing to learn more about our research, teaching and our students. In return for donations to the department for an agreed purpose such as a student prize or funds for a year abroad, we will offer your company opportunities to develop and strengthen your ties to the department and our activities.
Collaboration - UCL Computer Science places the highest value on its extensive range of industrial collaboration and gives top priority to consolidating, strengthening and increasing the scope of its industrial links. We encourage industrial collaboration at all levels and across all our research interests and projects. If you would like to become a key research partner or your company is interested in collaboration with the department please contact us.
Consultancy - Our staff have a wealth of expertise in all aspects of Computer Science and its associated topics. Many also have longstanding experience of acting as consultants to substantial projects. Our consultancy work is mutually beneficial - your company or project can benefit from our expertise and we benefit from direct involvement in pressing industry issues.
Spin-Outs - Much of our research has practical applications and, as a direct result of our research interests and our support for enterprise, spin-out businesses have been set up which maintain close links to the department but which operate independently as commercial enterprises.This is an exciting area for us and one that we are keen to see thrive and expand. If your company is interested in finding out more about our current spin-outs with a view to future collaboration or if you have ideas that you would like to discuss regarding future enterprises please contact us.
Graduate Recruitment - If you are a key industrial collaborator or are a member of our Partnership Programme or both, you could benefit from enhanced access to our students for recruitment purposes. If you are an employer interested in recruiting our graduates you could become a key partner and enjoy the same benefits. Our policy is to support our students during their period of study and to offer them as much careers guidance as possible.
Industry Prizes & Awards - As part of our collaboration with industry, we are very keen to talk to companies who are interested in sponsoring student prizes. Prizes can be at undergraduate and graduate level.
