Sponsors

We welcome the support of our past and future supporters! General registration for all participating companies is shown below, and there will be special sponsorship opportunities for the breakfast poster session, the afternoon lunch, and Railroad Night XII.   Click HERE to go directly to our sponsorship registration. 

The Michigan Tech Rail Program is always looking for ways to improve industry participation. Contact us for opportunities or ideas; financial support is always welcome, but projects for our senior design and enterprise programs are also important. Co-ops and internships are another avenue of support.

Company Registration - $500

  • Access to students in a targeted rail environment – students will know that the event is intended to show off the rail industry, and will attend if they have an interest in the industry.
  • Name recognition within the student population and the rail industry – we will include your company logo on all marketing materials, and will produce a pamphlet introducing all of the participating companies, giving a brief description of the company, and indicating the type of  work they do, and the positions they are recruiting for. This pamphlet will be produced and distributed in hard copy, on our website, and through social media.
  • Targeted discussion periods with faculty and students who are doing rail-related project work
  • Dinner, lunch, and breakfast for company representatives
  • Tax benfits for contribution to a non-profit organization

(1) - Student Poster Session Breakfast - $750

One company will have the opportunity to sponsor this event. A big part of a students learning experience is through constructive criticism from an industry veteran. Provides breakfast during the poster session so students can sit down one-on-one with industry to discuss rail-related projects they are working on in a casual environment. The poster session demonstrates the depth and breadth of our undergraduate and graduate student projects and research programs to our guests. In addition to the general company registration benefits listed above, your company will be recognized as the sponsor on marketing materials posted on the mall and around campus. You will also be featured in a rotating slide show during the evening festivities. Your company registration is included as part of this sponsorship.
