3 Easy steps for Businesses to start with Tethys Engineering

3 Easy steps for Businesses to start with Tethys Engineering
Working with Tethys Engineering is straight forward and can be brought down to 3 simple steps: ​
  1. Register and create a business profile 
  2. Post internships and develop relationships with possible student candidates 
  3. Launch a project and book students hours to get the work done

It has been easy, flexible and efficient to get the Solidworks models needed to launch the manufacturing of the injection molds for one of our new products. Even under a tight time line the students we worked with went out of their ways to finish the job on time.

Registering and creating a business profile

Although the registration shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes, including getting the verification email to active the account, it is recommended to spend a little time logging in and using some of the key feature to make the business' presence in Tethys Engineering known. The minimum is probably to upload an attractive cover picture and an icon as avatar so that it is easier for students to spot the business. Adding a few messages on the profile page of the business would help too and creating a couple of groups to get ready for inviting students into more private spaces should take a total of 10-15 min maximum

Posting internships and looking for students

We offer the possibility for businesses to post an entry describing the type of internships (or type of projects) proposed. These can then be reviewed by students and those interested can reach out to the business suggesting their participations. Multiple entries can be created for each business and those entries can be reviewed by the students that have participated further helping to spread the word and make these visible to the broad community. On the other end, a business user can search the members directory and the student reputation repository to find the right profile. From there an invitation to a private group can be sent to as many students as needed and those relationships can start to flourish

Launching a project and getting students booked

Each registered business has automatically access to our feature-rich project execution space, invite students and get started with work. The only prerequisite is to book the time of each student. It is a very simple process that can be initiated on the profile page of the student  or in the "offering" section of the web site under "My Tethys". Once the student and the service needed is selected, the check out process takes the user to a "shopping cart" which offers a 3 steps process to capture the information needed for payment. It is up to the business and the student to agree on the increment of hours that should be booked. Payment can be expedited with Paypal or Credit cards and work can get started.
