Railroad Engineering Education Survey

RTE Students & Alumni,
The Rail Transportation and Engineering Center (RailTEC) at the University of Illinois is conducting a brief survey to better understand the academic and extracurricular activities influencing student interest in pursuing education and careers in the rail industry.

As a past or current student interested in railway engineering, we would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey at the following link:
https://forms.gle/9G8hDWuZrMo3FHTV7

The survey should not take more than five minutes to complete, and all responses will be kept strictly anonymous.

The results of the survey will be used to shape the nature of outreach activities used to promote the railway field to youth.

My apologies if you already received this request via other email channels; if so, there is no need to complete the survey a second time.

Thank you in advance for completing the survey, and for your time.
