 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Please come out to Banatao Auditorium in Sutardja Dai Hall to learn about the exclusive partnership between Accel Partners and EECS Berkeley: The Accel Fellows Program!

The Accel Fellows Program provides unparalleled opportunities for students to grow and develop in unique ways by bridging technology, business, academics and real world experiences. Accel Scholars are equipped with opportunities to learn about and move forward in different career path (engineering, product management, entrepreneurship, etc). The curriculum covers topics not generally taught in class — how to become a great engineer, how to grow your career, how to build your professional network, how to raise money and start a company, and so on.

Accel Scholars will attend regular dinners with industry professionals and experts (founders, heads of engineering, PMs, etc) from Silicon Valley, all the while building relationships with their close cohort and expanding network of Accel Scholars. Every fall semester, scholars are taken on a field trip to various company headquarters to hear directly from the leaders behind Silicon Valley’s most influential companies. Past companies include: Uber, Dropbox, Slack, Doordash, PagerDuty, and IronClad. See highlights from our field trip! https://vimeo.com/299493788. This is a unique opportunity only available for EECS/CS students, so don't miss out!

Accel is a leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm that partners with exceptional founders from inception through all phases of growth. We’re fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with world-changing companies such as Facebook, Dropbox, Slack, Spotify, Atlassian, Etsy, Jet.com, Squarespace, InVision, Flipkart, Qualtrics, Supercell, and many more.
