GE Aviation

Job info:

Each year in the Fall, GE Recruiters come to campus for a GE Info Day and then return a few weeks later to interview students for co-op/intern positions at the GE businesses. This year, the GE Info Day is scheduled for September 20th and the interview dates for GE Aviation are Oct 2nd and 3rd. Steve will be interviewing Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Juniors for engineering positions at GE Aviation for the Spring or Summer of 2020.

GE Aviation is a great place to work with plenty of challenging roles available in a high technology business . Our co-ops perform real engineering work from the start. As students approach their graduation, they would have the opportunity to interview for a permanent role at GE Aviation. These entry level programs include opportunities for rotating work roles and technical education completed before the student selects a permanent role in our business.

For Senior Mechanical and Aero students there is an opportunity to apply for the entry level Edison Engineering Development program. Those students would need to go to and search for job number 3277167.
