Infrastructure groups lead effort to build interest in engineering

In an effort to address a growing need for engineers in Illinois, several infrastructure groups have joined to create additional interest in the field. The American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois is partnering with several agencies, including the Illinois Society of Professional Engineers and the Illinois State Tollway Highway Authority to highlight the need for more engineers across the state. The industry partners and state agencies jointly produced an informational video that will be available to all schools for career day presentations, STEM events so students can better understand the opportunities available to them in the engineering field. The video explains that engineering jobs don't only exist in big cities but in communities big and small across Illinois.
