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 performing analysis on existing flight hardware, assisting in the design and development of future hardware, performing analysis for both completed and future launches, test, systems engineering, mission integration, quality assurance, system safety, launch operations and production operations. Activities can include but are not limited to: data analysis, analysis methodology improvement projects, software improvement projects, trade studies, design for manufacturer studies, creating or modifying tool designs, processing cause and corrective actions for non-conformances, maintain production work instructions, supplier management, and component or integrated systems test. 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 as well as experience the day-to-day workings of engineering. Interns may perform and/or participate in additional activities/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.

IMPORTANT: After a candidate applies to the appropriate requisition on-line and if the candidate meets the basic qualifications as listed, a member of the ULA staffing team may further screen resumes to determine which candidates meet the position basic qualifications (requirements). Those meeting all job basic qualifications and key preferred skills may be forwarded to the hiring manager for review. The manager will then review both the resume and transcript of a candidate prior to conducting a phone interview. Based on the results of the phone interviews, an offer for employment may be extended to the best qualified applicant as long as the candidate does not withdraw from consideration. The internship hiring process may take three to four months from the first contact a candidate has with a recruiter until a student is selected for an intern position.
