Welcome to the Office of Corporate Partnerships

The Corporate Relations office in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at NC State University encourages valuable and meaningful interactions among faculty, students, alumni, and industry representatives. The corporate relations program provides opportunities that enable our ECE community to excel without limits. Contact your dedicated ECE Corporate Relations connection, Heather Daughtridge, Director of External Relations, for engagement opportunities.

Aligning the corporate relations efforts to the ECE departmental vision allows us to create, maintain and grow strong industry relations. Our goal is to create corporate partnerships who will engage, innovate and impact our ECE community.

The ECE Connection program is the primary vehicle for corporate partners to gain access to a world-class pool of talent: our students, alumni and faculty. In addition to potential charitable tax benefits, the program offers diverse opportunities and a high-value return on a company’s investment. Partnering opportunities can be tailored to fit your organizational needs. Your dedicated Corporate Relations team can help you determine the most meaningful ways for engagement such as:
