Kiewit is one of North America's largest contractors, and have recruited Pittsburg State students for many years. As a Fortune 300 company, Kiewit had 2015 revenues of more than $9 billion and consistently ranks among the top five contractors by Engineering News-Record.
The employee-owned company operates through a network of offices and projects in the United States, Canada and Australia. Nearly all construction projects are staffed by one or more owners of the company.
Pittsburg State University's Construction Expo began modestly several years ago as an avenue for students to operate earth-moving equipment. It now attracts some of the biggest names in industry and offers students the opportunity for hands-on experience with millions of dollars of construction-related equipment and technology.
