Classroom Speaker Request Form and Guidelines

(Intended for Company Representatives and Others Interested in Making a Classroom Presentation)

Thank you for your interest in making a presentation to ISU College of Engineering students.  The College highly values the partnerships that help to develop our students into world-class engineering talent.  The College encourages industry representatives to engage our students (and faculty) in a variety of ways including making technical and professional development presentations.  This form was prepared to address classroom presentation requests made through Engineering Career Services, since these requests often require special consideration to ensure that the academic requirements of the students are advanced.

Please read the following guidelines, fill-out the form below, and a copy will be sent to Engineering Career Services.  We will forward the information to the engineering departments and inform you of any opportunities to present.  Please contact Engineering Career Services if you have any questions.


  • Class instructors are responsible for course content and classroom management.  They decide which guest speaker to invite based on learning objectives and schedule considerations.
  • Speakers are welcome to provide an introduction to their company/organization (~5 min.), but the focus of the talk must be a technical or career development topic.
  • Some classes may be a combination of engineering students and science or technology students.
  • In order to meet equal employment opportunity laws, any specific job opportunity discussed must be posted on our electronic job board (CyHire).  This ensures that all qualified candidates on the ISU campus have an opportunity to learn of the job opening and apply.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
