ePartner Levels & Benefits

All our ePartners benefit from having a dedicated liaison on campus to coordinate their activities and engagement opportunities, and to help tailor their involvement and benefits to meet specific needs.


In addition to allowable charitable tax benefits, our ePartners receive a tangible return on their investment through access to:

  • Targeted and priority access to exclusive recruiting activities and tools
  • Access to NC State, College of Engineering and computer science news and communications
  • Recognition, branding, marketing and image exposure
  • Faculty interaction and engagement
  • Invitations to special events, receptions, seminars, lectures, forums, and focus groups
  • Priority naming rights opportunities
  • Sponsorship opportunities including Senior Design Center projects, major events, programs, and strategic initiatives.

 

Three distinct membership levels are available allowing businesses of any size an opportunity to partner with us.
