Groton, CT, United States
Civil Engineering, Engineering, Internship
Electric Boat offers an excellent learning environment and real life experience for college students. We have over 2500 engineers currently involved in a significant amount of submarine design work. Most prominently the design of the Ohio Replacement (considered the top priority in the Navy), and Virginia Class construction support and design of upgrades such as the Virginia Payload Module and associated payloads. The Engineering interns are provided with tasks that are both technically challenging and educationally stimulating. With the guidance of Electric Boat's senior staff the interns will support the calculations, document development, shipyard problem resolution and other various technical activities. An introduction is provided to understand these complex products which lead to the potential inclusion for those who have a passion for this type of problem solving in the staff of the future.
Our Engineers take pride in the support they provide to protect our nation and our world in the design, engineering, build and delivery of world-class submarines. Imagine working side by side with some of the top talent in our industry while applying classroom learning in the workplace.
Engineering Interns will assist engineers in developing and checking calculations, reviewing and preparing technical documents, resolving shipboard problems with components, systems and structures and other engineering activities across the Engineering and Program organizations. As an intern you will typically work as part of a team in a specific engineering discipline while being mentored by one or more full-time engineers. Applicants should be able to communicate well, both orally and in writing.
Civil (Structural) Engineers at Electric Boat interface with designers, other engineering disciplines, service departments, shipyard personnel and our Navy customers. Using a design-build approach and working in a team environment, engineers develop innovative solutions to solve design development, new construction, and in-service problems on US Navy nuclear submarines. Being accepted into the Electric Boat internship means getting a mentor the first day you start that will guide you for the duration of your time here. This is the opportunity to kick start your career and gain engineering work experience in any of the following areas:
- Ship Signatures
- Aft End Integration, Propulsion Plant Structures & Shielding
- Fluid Systems
- Waterfront Structural Non-Nuclear
- Construction Support Integration
- Solid Mechanics
- Fluid Mechanics
