    CEO, Greeley and Hansen

  • As an alumnus of this program, I know firsthand the value of a U of I education. Almost 20 percent of our nationwide professionals are U of I graduates, providing a real-world testimonial to CEE's program.

    President and CEO, Hanson Professional Services Inc.

  • As a global leader in consulting, engineering, and construction, CH2M HILL is looking for some of the brightest minds from the University of Illinois.
