As the post-World War II high-tech revolution was increasing in momentum, the need for more engineers was becoming critical.  In 1953, as a way of commemorating its 50th anniversary, Eta Kappa Nu produced a career guidance film to interest high school students in engineering careers.

The 50th anniversary movie committee was formed, with Dean William L. Everitt, College of Engineering, University of Illinois, as chair. Committee members John E. Farley, Alpha '48, president of the Chicago Alumni HKN Chapter, and Roger Wilkinson of the New York Alumni HKN Chapter wrote the script. Everitt provided valuable guidance and support and enlisted the aid of the university's motion picture and television unit to create the movie "Engineering -- A Career for Tomorrow."  Daniel F. Hang, also a member of the committee, engineering students, and others from the Urbana-Champaign campus appeared in the film. Scenes were filmed also in the Chicago area at Illinois Bell Telephone and Commonwealth Edison.

The film includes no credits or cast roll, so if you recognize anyone, please use the feedback button on the IEEE.tv home page and let us know!
