Why Sponsor OEC 2017?
We strongly encourage that our sponsors get involved with all aspects of the competition. This way you can provide feedback to the competitors, not simply as judges or corporate representatives but also engineers that also work in the industry.
This competition provides an ideal opportunity to network with students that will soon complete their studies and move into the working world. It also provides the chance to engage with other industry leaders and academic representatives that are attending the competition. The Sponsors Expo will give the students a chance to see what the sponsors have to offer.
Each organization that sponsors the OEC 2017 will have a significant amount of exposure to all the students participating in the competition. In addition, depending on the level of sponsorship, organizations will have their logo represented everywhere from the website to the delegate packages that are distributed to all competing teams.
Before sending teams to OEC each school hosts smaller local competitions in order to select the strongest teams to send to the OEC. This means that each school will be sending their brightest and most innovative students to compete on their behalf. This is an outstanding opportunity for organizations to interact with and potentially recruit future partners, managers, employees, clients – all leaders of tomorrow.
The OEC is a province-wide competition that invites schools from all over Ontario. By being involved with this event, organizations are investing in the continued success of students pursuing careers in engineering.
