The Corporate Affiliates Program has provided a wealth of resources for recruiting and collaborative research projects. Our 2003 college hiring goals exceeded all expectations. Our local division, Radio Systems, hired 12 new grads and 14 interns through CAP/UCSD networking efforts. The strength of our business is directly related to the caliber of our engineering staff and UCSD provides that tradition of excellence.

We initially took advantage of the CAP's recruiting opportunities, but now we are realizing its value in encouraging collaboration with Jacobs School faculty and researchers, and helping us develop technology roadmaps for tomorrow. One of the prime selling points of CAP is that it provides government scientists and engineers with access to some of the best researchers in the world. I am very excited to see what ensues from these relationships.

The Corporate Affiliates Program affords us the opportunity to exchange ideas on how we may better use Jacobs School research that is most relevant to us, and gain exposure to the perspectives of other member companies. Through brainstorming in our meetings on how to advance and promote the vision and objectives of the Jacobs School, we've also been given the opportunity to influence the shape and direction of CAP and the new programs the School is introducing - that's great for us.
