The Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech, through its tech-talent community, CS|Source, provides a pathway for department-industry partnerships, including its career fairs held during the fall and spring semesters.

The department benefits through investments of funding toward student scholarships, groups, and activities; development of students leading to internships and careers; and research opportunities to address and advance technological solutions.

This year, 48 students received scholarships through the CS|Source totaling $100K, all made possible through this partnership.

A total of 42 companies are participating in the CS|Source fall career fair, with 12 companies in person and 27 virtual, which kicked off its activities this week with a virtual career fair prep networking event on September 8. The in-person and virtual career fair will be held on September 13.
