Students in a computer lab within E-Knowledge Commons

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

Gain visibility for your company among some of the brightest engineering students in the world.

The Gursahaney Family E-Knowledge Commons has five small group meeting rooms that function as corporate sponsorship boxes. Your sponsorship of $25,000, payable in five yearly increments of $5,000, allows you to brand the box for five years and use the box to connect with students when company representatives visit campus. After that time, you have the opportunity to renew your sponsorship.

MNE has nearly 1,000 undergraduate students and over 300 graduate students. The E-Knowledge Commons is a place where these students gather to work in teams, study between classes, and learn from each other. Increasing your company’s visibility among these students can go a long way in recruiting for internships, co-ops, and full-time job hirings.
