Rockwell Automation is the largest company in the world dedicated to industrial automation and information. Here, we connect the imaginations of people with the potential of technology to make the world more intelligent, more connected and more productive. From improving the production of medicines that boost human health to reducing waste in an oil and gas plant, the work we do changes how we live.
We truly believe we are doing things never before possible. And we need the brightest minds to help make that happen – the makers, the forward thinkers, the problem solvers. That’s where you come in.
Our Hardware Co-Op’s last 7 months from either January-August or May-December. This is an opportunity to dig deep and work with a team of engineers and industry professionals to develop and test Rockwell hardware and optimize industrial operations. Our hardware roles fall into 2 categories:
- Mechanical Development: Designing and testing customized customer orders. Participate in testing (high current, environmental, life testing), design, automation, and technical documentation. Working with circuit breakers, drives, transformers, relays and more. Work alongside multiple teams like power, firmware and software engineers
- Electrical Development: Research new or replacement technologies and components, assist in circuit design and component selection, develop test requirements and execute hardware verification test plans for board level functional testing, EMC validation, Certification Agency compliance (UL, ATEX, IECEX), and Functional Safety (IEC 61508). Perform programming, analysis, and troubleshooting of electronic hardware prototypes. Contribute to associated product design documentation and test reports.
You will have the opportunity to be a significant contributor, while getting comprehensive exposure to the business structure of Rockwell Automation and how we are helping our customers bring the Connected Enterprise to life. Each intern has a dedicated mentor to help navigate Rockwell, ramp up in our code base, and remove daily blockers. Additionally, as a student associate there will be hosted activities and events intended to help you grow your network, develop your professional skills and immerse yourself in our company culture.
