Digital Sign Submission
The University of Idaho College of Engineering allows U of I colleges, departments and affiliates to submit pre-designed digital signage for display on screens across the engineering complex.
All submissions must have a connection to STEM and appeal to current engineering students. Submissions related to employment or health & wellbeing are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
Slides run in 8-second intervals, so keeping content short is highly encouraged. Please use the provided templates for more guidelines on content length, fonts and sizing.
3 day lead time is required to post digital signs.
