IEEE Student Congress: Corporate Sponsors Wanted!

by @ 7:40 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Computers/Software, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt

Held this year at Stanford University!
IEEE Student Congress: Corporate Sponsors Wanted!
– August 9-11, 2013     – Platinum, Gold, Silver levels
– Engineering Student Leaders from the Western States
Your company can get great mind-share with the top engineering students across the Western USA! Please forward our Request Letter to your grants person, suggesting a contribution and outlining how we can help your company make contact with these students through corporate displays and on-site staff. Your company (and you) can take an active part in the Student Congress in a number of ways.
