Challenging Projects

  • Attended University of Illinois at Chicago
  • Degree in Electrical Engineering

“I have the opportunity to solve interesting engineering challenges every day! From automating a manually controlled compressor station and troubleshooting non-functioning equipment, to managing communication protocols for a SCADA-controlled system hundreds of miles away, my work is never dull or boring.

What I like best about working at EN Engineering is that every project is unique, and that keeps things interesting. I am constantly learning about new equipment, software, and standards, and gaining valuable on-the-job knowledge.

Solving complex problems and witnessing successful outcomes is extremely rewarding. I value the opportunity to work on interesting projects and build a professional network with people across the country.”

Continuing Education

  • Attended Eastern Illinois University and Northern Illinois University
  • Degree in finance and working on MBA

“Earning an MBA has always been one of my goals, so when I started working for EN Engineering, the generous tuition reimbursement program was the final motivation I needed. Most companies don’t offer such a generous policy! It’s reassuring to know that as long as I stay with the company they will continue to reimburse me until I pay off my education loan.

In my accounting role, I work with company executives on a daily basis, and they really encouraged me to continue my education. This support, combined with the tuition reimbursement benefit, reinforces that the company values education. MBA programs are very expensive, so I am extremely grateful for the financial support, and of course, the personal encouragement.”

Career Growth

  • Attended Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
  • Degrees in Engineering Management (Master’s) and Mechanical Engineering

“My career growth potential is unlimited! I started my EN Engineering career as a college intern and now, ten years later, I’m a project manager. During college, I spent two summers in the internship program, and following graduation, I joined the company as a full time design engineer. I had the opportunity to work in several different product lines and became a senior design engineer within a few years.

The company really encourages and supports employee training and development, as well as career advancement. EN Engineering is constantly seeking to expand in new and existing markets, and this provides challenging projects for employees and generates unlimited opportunities for career growth.”

Mentoring Opportunities

  • Attended University of Illinois at Chicago
  • Degree in Civil Engineering

“The company’s strong focus on engineering excellence, combined with the diverse staff and broad scope of project opportunities, makes it a great environment to start your career.  If you are ready to learn and work hard in a team setting, this is the place for you. The company’s growth parallels the opportunities for individual growth. I’ve had the opportunity to learn from highly-experienced professionals, and in turn, I’ve mentored and trained new employees.

The leadership team encourages experienced staff members to guide new employees and ensure they have the skills, knowledge, and expertise to work on challenging projects. And, mentorship doesn’t just focus on engineering, the company promotes outreach mentorship opportunities through the community involvement programs and SPARK, a group that promotes networking to advance women’s careers.”

Giving Back to our Communities

  • Attended College of DuPage and the University of Illinois at Chicago
  • Degree in Civil/Materials Engineering

“Giving back is as important to the company as it is to me! EN Engineering is a great corporate citizen that supports its local communities. Our Community Involvement Committee helps organize charitable events throughout the year, including building homes for Habitat for Humanity, helping senior citizens, providing holiday gifts for the needy, and raising funds for charity on casual dress day.

In addition to the great feeling you get from giving back, interacting with co-workers outside of the office and helping those in need establishes strong interpersonal relationships and builds team bonds.

As the company grows, so does our community involvement! Collectively, we are making a huge difference in our local communities, and there is no greater achievement than giving back and making an impact countywide, statewide, and nationwide!”

Sr. Project Engineer

Relocation Options

  • University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
  • Degree in Civil Engineering

“The opportunities for relocation and career growth are unmatched! I started my career with EN Engineering in Warrenville, Illinois, as a structural engineer, but in 2014, my wife was offered a great job in Los Angeles, California. I heard the company was opening an office in Southern California, so I approached my manager about relocating, and he was extremely supportive. The company even paid for my moving costs! My family has been completely happy with our decision. I really like the start-up feel of a satellite office, and there are tremendous opportunities for career growth.

EN Engineering has a number of offices located in great cities throughout the U.S., and the company continues to grow, so for anyone looking to expand their exposure professionally and socially, there are great opportunities.”

Opportunities for Veterans

  • Attended College of DuPage
  • Studying for Associate of Science

“The company values veterans! After serving four years in the U.S. Navy, a friend told me about EN Engineering’s military training program. I submitted an application and before I knew it, I was participating in a two-week paid training course. It’s a fantastic program that most companies don’t offer. Many veterans struggle to find a career in the civilian world, but EN Engineering honors veterans, reservists, and members of the National Guard by offering an unmatched career opportunity.

During the intensive training program, I learned the basics of AutoCAD applications, GIS software, pipeline design, and professional and business skills. Following the training, I transitioned to a 90-day contract position and was hired as a full-time employee. The EN Engineering training program has provided a new lease on my post-military life.”
