Internships

GE Global Research provides challenging intern assignments for students who are looking to get a critical jump-start on a career in industrial research. These 10- to 12-week assignments offer an opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in one of the GE Research labs.

At Global Research, scientists, engineers and technicians work together to provide GE’s businesses and strategic partners with technical innovations for their future generation products, processes and services.

You will spend your internship working side by side with experts in the field, completing challenging technical projects. You’ll enjoy the satisfaction of seeing your work make a difference while you gain valuable experience. You’ll apply your theoretical knowledge to real-life technical problems and develop your skills in a cutting-edge global environment.

Internships are offered year round and may include seminars on cross-center technology and soft skills development. Opportunities for networking and showcasing your project accomplishments are offered.

While the primary focus of the internship program is on graduate level students, there are undergraduate opportunities as well. Students enrolled in a graduate degree program may apply for a Graduate Research Internship. Undergraduate students currently in their junior year may apply for an Undergraduate Research Internship.
