Atlas Tube, a division of JMC Steel Group, a producer of steel tubular products and HSS, will host its annual DFI Student Day on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, at the Atlas Pipe Piles Chicago manufacturing mill. Atlas Tube and the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) welcome engineering students to the mill for a guided tour, lunch, and various networking opportunities.
The free event offers engineering undergraduate students a chance to learn about the structural steel products they will work with in their future careers.

Students also will have the opportunity to give their résumés to professionals from JMC Steel Group and the Illinois Department of Transportation for possible internships and employment.
Following a complimentary lunch, a guided tour will show students how steel pipe piling is manufactured in the facility, including seeing structural rounds, squares, and rectangular products in production. The event runs until 2:00 p.m., when buses will transport students back to their universities.
