The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is excited to contribute to a vision in which the State of Michigan is a driving force for computing and information technology. We engage with a diverse set of strategic and corporate partners on a wide range of issues that benefit research, teaching, and student services in the department.

Partnerships include:

  • Strategic Partners Council
  • Capstone Course clients
  • Formal and informal partnerships with individual faculty 

Sponsor a Capstone Project

The Capstone Experience provides the educational capstone for all students majoring in computer science at Michigan State University. Teams of students build software projects for a variety of project sponsors.

MSU Spartan Coding Clubs (SPARCC)

We aim to broaden participation in computer science among K-12 students in Michigan and beyond. By engaging K-12 students in face-to-face and virtual programs led by near-peer university student mentors, we aim to build excitement across the rapidly growing fields of information technology, data science and software engineering.
