GEARRS Sponsorship

One of the reasons GEARRS has become such a success is because of the financial support recieved from our sponsors. To continue our success in preparing students for presentations and conferences, we are always looking for donors. GEARRS 2015 will include presentations and poster sessions by 40 graduate students and post doctoral researchers, with an attendance of over 200 professionals. By being a sponsor of GEARRS your company will benefit in the following ways:

  • Market your company's commitment to engineering education and state of the art research facilities.

  • Evaluate, first-hand, the exceptional engineering talent within this department and gain insight well beyond that which a resume could provide.

  • Examine cutting-edge research projects relevant to your company's future interests.

  • Diversify your company's partnerships by getting to know local experts in a variety of research disciplines.

By giving any sized gift (or $25 by claiming this reward) to our campaign, you will be looped into updates and communications from Mechanical Engineering students involved in our campaign. We hope you will support us!
