Current ME Corporate Partners
Host an Exclusive Company Day
Meet our students one-on-one during your own exclusive recruiting event at Purdue ME! Set up your booth during the day, and have your own special presentation or networking event in the evening. We’ll advertise on our website, building TVs, and social media channels.
Engage Students in the Classroom
Become a Guest Lecturer
Get maximum exposure by guest-lecturing in a sophomore level class, such as How Stuff Works (ME297), or the required Sophomore Professional Seminar (ME290).
Serve as a Judge
Lend your expertise to student design competitions. Intro to Mechanical Engineering Design (ME263) features teams of students who create new products from scratch, conduct the engineering review, create a budget and a marketing plan, and build a prototype. You can serve as a judge for these teams, determining whose product has the best innovation.
Receive Priority Invitations
Corporate Partners will receive priority invitations to student engagement classroom opportunities each semester.
