Chrysler Group has long tapped SIUC’s Automotive Technology program for new hires and interns who work in a variety of capacities for the Chrysler Group, including Manufacturing, Network Development and Fleet, Mopar® Service, Parts and Customer Care, and other areas of the company.

“Donating a made-in-Illinois Dodge Dart is a way to give back to the university that continues to supply Chrysler Group with well-trained automotive graduates. Chrysler Group has been hiring SIUC automotive grads since 1982, and we look forward to continuing our close relationship with one of the nation’s premiere four-year automotive programs.”
