Corporate Partners

It's time to take giant leaps together!

Purdue's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering recognizes that you, as a leader in industry, understand the importance of being involved in the career development of our next generation of brilliant students. Our School hosts some of the brightest, most innovative students in the world. Our undergraduates are at the center of one of the nation’s most prestigious programs and research initiatives, and with the help of our outstanding faculty they are taking giant leaps to provide solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges in engineering.

Purdue ECE’s Corporate Partners Program (CPP) is a relationship-building opportunity that offers participating companies exclusive access to new talent within our School. It has been established to connect companies directly with Purdue ECE students and student organizations in several different ways to provide exclusive recruiting opportunities. It is also designed to provide participating companies with the outlets they need to raise awareness for their brand on Purdue University’s campus.

Our corporate affiliates are given the support and flexibility to develop a company-specific strategy for student engagement.

  • Participating companies will have the ability to reach out directly to our ECE student body by advertising hiring opportunities through our Graduate and Undergraduate Offices as well as the Purdue Center for Career Opportunities.
  • Recruiting officers representing our member companies will be given facilitated access to Purdue ECE student organizations, including the Purdue chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Purdue ECE Student Society (ECESS), and our very own Eta Kappa Nu honor society (HKN).
  • Our largest career fair, the Boilermaker Circuit, is an exclusive event Purdue ECE offers for our corporate partners. This annual event regularly sees well over 500 of our brightest undergraduate students eagerly apply for positions within our member companies, and it is a high-priority focal point for many of our participating members.
  • Additional recruiting opportunities are supported through no-cost access to InternX, a platform designed to help streamline the recruiting process for our corporate partners and our students.
