Cupertino Electric Sponsors Leading Construction Industry Student Competition
SPARKS, Nev. --(Business Wire)--
Engineering and construction leader Cupertino
Electric, Inc. (CEI) today announced its continued support of the Associated
Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competition, a national
construction industry event in Sparks, Nevada where college students
prove their estimating and engineering skills in a real-world setting.
The annual competition is in its twenty-sixth year, runs through
February 9, 2013 and attracts 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 (News - Alert), 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."
About the ASC Competition
Any student of an ASC-affiliated school is eligible to participate in
competition. Students compete intensely for honors based on their
ability to survive and thrive during a simulated construction bid
process-from pre-qualification to oral interview stages. During the
competition, participants are judged on their project planning, design
and presentation skills by a panel of experts.
This year's electrical problem, created by Cupertino Electric's own
estimating and engineering teams, is open to any student team attending
an ASC-affiliated university. College students representing Auburn
University; California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo;
California State University, Chico; California State University,
Sacramento; Colorado State University; Milwaukee School of Engineering;
Oregon State University; and Purdue University (News - Alert) are participating in the
"open" electrical problem.
The top three student teams receive recognition and money for their
school's ASC program. In addition, the individual student participating
in the "open" electrical problem that exemplifies the drive, commitment,
passion for electrical contracting and shameless enthusiasm found among
Cupertino Electric employees will receive a "Most Valuable Participant"
