Job Description:

Engineering intern positions offer a variety of opportunities including basic engineering tasks related to design, analysis, test, integration and systems engineering. Opportunities can vary from design/analysis in support of existing ground, flight, test, or processing hardware for both launch vehicles and ground support equipment or systems, assisting in the design and development of future hardware, test development and performance, software design and test, systems engineering, mission integration, project management, quality assurance, system safety, launch operations, production operations, and even related business opportunities such as subcontractor management and procurement. Internships may require travel to suppliers, customers, or other ULA locations.

Interns will typically support one or more experienced engineers in performance of assignments, spend time shadowing actual operations, and have unique assignments that support larger projects - all enabling the intern to experience the day-to-day operations of engineering within United Launch Alliance. Interns may perform and/or participate in additional activities and events which help them build a strong network within the ULA community and with fellow interns.

A taxable housing/transportation stipend may be provided to obtain housing near the ULA work location if the successful candidate?s permanent home address and current college address are both greater than 50 miles from the assigned ULA work location.
