ACEC Illinois Initiative Promotes STEM Careers

ACEC Illinois Initiative Promotes STEM Careers

ACEC Illinois launched a STEM program this week with the Illinois Department of Transportation and Illinois Tollway and a coalition of industry partners. The initiative aims to generate interest in engineering careers for Illinois students and is part of a larger effort by the Illinois DOT to educate and hire engineers in the face of a national shortage.

“Filling engineering jobs is going to be vital to designing, engineering, and building the state’s priority infrastructure projects,” said ACEC-IL Executive Director Kevin Artl.

The Member Organization has created a webpage that lists information resources for students and educators, an extensive list of Midwestern engineering schools, contact information at the DOT and Tollway, videos, and career day resources.

All comments to blog posts will be moderated by ACEC staff.
