The Eaton Internship Program – Operations for Engineers is designed to provide opportunities to a diverse mix of students who demonstrate the same high level of ethics, values, creativity and performance we expect from our employees. During the 12 to 14 week paid internship, students will work on projects that have a measurable impact on our business and will be coached and mentored by Eaton leaders.
The objective of the internship is to develop students through practical manufacturing and operations experiences, as well as assist in the personal development of leadership competencies through training, networking and coaching. The assignment will help the participant develop a wide range of leadership and functional competencies within the field of operations. Opportunities are available for those students interested in specific engineering functions such as operations, design, lean, manufacturing, operational excellence, marketing, quality, or supply chain.
After completion of the internship, and upon graduation, your experience and newly acquired skills could lead you to a variety of career paths, such as full time employment in one of our many rotational leadership development programs or more directly into field as a part of one of our Early Talent non-rotational development programs. These full-time programs could include assignments in Operational Excellence, Supply Chain, Quality, Engineering, Technical Sales or Front Line Supervision.
