Departmental Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship makes a difference. We have nearly 1,000 undergraduate students and more than 200 graduate students in the MNE department. Partnering with us will increase your company's visibility among some of the best and brightest engineering students. Our students will put you on their short list for internships, co-ops, and full-time job hiring.

Your sponsorships also go a long way toward improving the academic excellence of the department by supporting the opportunities available to our students. Corporate sponsorships allow us to have high-tech facilities and events, such as the distinguished lecture series.

Contact us to explore the various levels of sponsorship to advance department and corporate objectives.

Sponsor a study room in the E-Knowledge Commons

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is building a student-centered space in Reber Building. The proposed E-Knowledge Commons will give students a place to work in teams within a variety of study spaces, while having easy access to technology and other resources. For more information on this project and the corporate sponsorship opportunities available, visit the E-Knowledge Commons website.
