The company will select a number of outstanding university students to take part in a 12-week summer internship at its Seattle offices and facilities, in the US, working in positions ranging from engineering, finance, project management and other positions relating to its core competences. This was revealed by Boeing international sales director Miguel Santos at the Aviation and Business Forum, held at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), earlier this month. The event was sponsored by Boeing and the National Aerospace Centre of Excellence.
Over the next few months, Boeing will select universities that meet the programme’s requirements and have educational programmes that align with Boeing’s business objectives, while the universities will run their own candidate selection programmes. The aim is to have the first intake of interns in the northern hemisphere summer of 2012.
