Endeavour is a program of events run by students and supported by staff from the Melbourne School of Engineering. Endeavour aims to promote innovation and excellence in Engineering & IT through networking events, a schools outreach program and the exhibition of design and research projects completed by final year Engineering & IT students.

Why Sponsor?

Brand Exposure

Your organisation will be able to reach a rich and diverse audience participating in the series of Endeavour events. The Endeavour Engineering & IT Exhibition, Industry Night, and Endeavour Adventure, all scheduled for 22 October 2015, attract the largest audience of over 6000 people ranging from primary school students to heads of corporations, including students and academics from the University.

Sponsoring Endeavour will allow your company to display materials, advertisements and logos prominently throughout the event and provide other promotional materials for Endeavour events during the year. Priority access will be given to representatives of your company which will further promote your brand to the final year project students participating in Endeavour.

Student Interaction

Your organisation will be given access and speaking opportunities at networking events to interact with the brightest Engineering & IT students from Australia’s No.1 University for Engineering & IT.

The Endeavour Roundtable is an exclusive networking event where your organisation will be able to contribute to selecting the students and connect with them during the event. The Endeavour Connection and Alumni events provide your company with speaking opportunities to address the graduating class from the Melbourne School of Engineering. Exhibiting students will be available throughout the night of the Endeavour Engineering & IT Exhibition to discuss their year-long projects.

Special Opportunities

The Endeavour Management Team welcomes any approach from various organisations which would like to offer technology workshops, lab tours and other contributions to support the Endeavour program. An example might be a tour of a production facility, research facility or other enterprise, suitable for a group of engineering students or even for school students. Through this and many other initiatives, Endeavour encourages sponsors to actively take part in all aspects of Endeavour according to the unique interests and needs of their respective organisations.

Promoting Engineering & IT

By sponsoring Endeavour, your organisation is also supporting students from the Melbourne School of Engineering to promote Engineering & IT to primary and secondary school students. The Endeavour Roadshow brings interactive hands-on activities and demonstration to classrooms, while the Endeavour Adventure brings school students to the University of Melbourne during the Endeavour Engineering & IT Exhibition to view the final year students project that are on exhibit. These two events will encourage students to pursue an Engineering and IT career in the future.
