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."
