School is back in session! EETech Media, in coordination with Digi-Key Electronics, is seeking actively enrolled students in EE/ECE programs that want to be involved in exciting and innovative student projects and activities — as brand ambassadors. An ideal ambassador is reliable, organized, creative, self-driven, and actively involved with EE/ECE clubs.
