Engineering and construction leader Cupertino Electric, Inc. (CEI) recently announced its continued support of the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competition, a national construction industry event in Sparks, Nev., where college students prove their estimating and engineering skills in a real-world setting. The annual competition, in its 26th year, ran through February 9 and attracted more than 1,000 construction management and engineering students from across the United States.

 “Because of the increasingly important role of electrical contracting on construction projects, students, like those attending ASC, are hungry for exposure to the sophisticated side of electrical contracting,” said Kathy Abbott, college relations manager at Cupertino Electric, Inc. “The ASC Competition is a great way to introduce students to the career paths and experience that new employees have when joining a nationally-acclaimed organization like Cupertino Electric.”
