Promote Your Event

Options, Guidelines, and Submission Requirements 

Looking to build brand awareness and connect with our 6,000+ undergrad and graduate engineering students? 

Engineering Career Connections promotes employer information sessions, networking events, design challenges, hackathons, and professional development opportunities via our weekly newsletter, events calendars, and social media.

To have your engineering-specific initiative or event considered for inclusion, please submit the required information via our Promotion Request form.

Note that the form requires you to:

  • identify your target audience (discipline(s), degree program(s), year(s))
  • provide the event or initiative particulars (title, marketing blurb (max 500 characters))
  • include a URL for students to access additional information and register/apply
  • optional: add an event banner image and/or promotional photo

To allow us adequate time to promote your opportunity, we ask that requests be submitted a minimum of 14 days prior to an event. For inclusion in our weekly newsletter, submissions must be received by 12:00 noon (MT) on Friday.

Our office reserves the right to determine what is posted on our platforms: our ability to promote your item/event is also dependent on the timing and volume of requests received
