An internship is an excellent way to jumpstart your career.

If you have an interest in the aerospace industry, then consider applying for an internship at Williams.

Who said interns only get to file, make copies and fetch coffee? Not at Williams International! Our interns get hands-on experience designing, testing and repairing gas turbine engines. There are no coffee trips here, just real engineering work.

Previous interns have worked in the following areas:

  • Design and analysis including aerodynamics and thermal/structures.
  • Mechanical components
  • Electrical systems
  • Project management and test engineering
  • Software and design
  • In-house advanced manufacturing technology
  • Materials and process
  • Machining
  • Finance

Don’t just take our word for it. See what our previous interns had to say:

“The small-company atmosphere at Williams is very rare for jet engine manufacturers. It is that culture that gives you direct access to the resources and knowledge required to solve many different types of engineering challenges you are exposed to as an intern.” ~ Michigan Technological University Graduate.

“My summer internship at Williams International was a very educational and hands on experience. The work I did was real-time and applicable.” ~ Michigan State University Graduate.

“Williams International offers a friendly and interesting workplace environment to its interns. My co-workers were also always open to answering my questions even when they didn't apply directly to my current work.” ~ Ohio State University Student

“My internship with Williams International was one of the most rewarding experiences of my college career. I was able to contribute my engineering solutions to real problems.” ~ University of Purdue Graduate

“I interned at Williams International and gained multi-disciplinary real-world experience, building on pre-existing knowledge while learning a variety of new skills. An amiable work environment, hands-on experience, mentorship, and outdoor lunch sporting events are some of the many reasons I returned as a full-time employee.” ~ University of Michigan Graduate

MIAT Internships
We consistently work with MIAT College of Technology to recruit Airframe & Powerplant Technicians. We offer internship opportunities throughout the year and those internships have the potential to turn into full time opportunities for successful candidates.

We Want to Invest in Your Future - Tuition and Education Assistance
Williams International supports employees through their continued education and learning. Employees are eligible from their date of hire to be considered for 100% tuition-reimbursement for any educational program including associate degrees all the way up to graduate degrees.

The Michigan Advanced Technician Training (MAT2) program is set up to provide students with classroom instruction and on the job training in order to prepare them for skilled trade jobs. The State of Michigan partners with organizations to support students through the program. Williams International participates by covering tuition costs towards an associates degree in applied science. The fields of study may be either Mechatronics or CNC Manufacturing. Additionally, a competitive hourly wage and a stipend are provided while students work to receive their degree. Thereafter, students receive a full time offer and must commit two more years to working for Williams International. The MAT2 allows students to train in a real world setting, complement their training with formal education and secure a job in this highly competitive labor market.

Machining Apprenticeship Program
We offer a Machining Apprenticeship Program at our Michigan location. Candidates who demonstrate a basic level of mechanical aptitude and quantitative skills are are eligible to apply for the two-year program. Throughout the program, apprentices will complete anywhere between two and four rotations in the following areas: Conventional Mill, Conventional Lathe, Benchwork, and CNC Machining. Apprentices learn on the job (40 hours/week) across our three shifts and receive a competitive salary and benefits packages. Upon successful completion of the program, apprentices receive a full time offer as machinists.

Technical School Partnerships in Utah
Williams International has partnered with OWTC, DTC, and BTC, to provide an internship with hands on learning to students enrolled in the college’s machining program. As a Williams International intern you will: gain real world experience, receive an hourly wage during the internship, choose your own schedule and have your tuition be paid by Williams International.

Machining students may be eligible for hire as a machinist after completing as few as 900 hours of training. Full-time team members receive a competitive salary and benefits package.

Rotational Programs
Williams International understands the value of cross-training our Engineers. While we may be smaller than many of our competitors, cross-functional assignments result in engineers who have well-rounded skills and expertise, giving us the flexibility to stay ahead of the competition. The Engineering Rotational Program allows recent graduates to enter our company and acquire these skills and knowledge.

Why spend your engineering career building one part of an engine? Engineers in the Rotation Program not only design the parts, they are fully immersed in the testing and ongoing maintenance. New engineers will typically rotate through three departments over their first 18 months before settling into an area of specialization. Some of the rotations may include:

  • Mechanical Design, Modeling and Layout of Engine Systems
  • Structural & Thermal Component Evaluation
  • Aerodynamic Design & Performance Analysis
  • Thermodynamic Engine Cycle Modeling
  • Vibration and Rotordynamic Assessment & Test
  • Mechanical Component Rig Design & Test
  • Electrical and Electronics Design & Test
  • Control System Development
  • Software Development
  • Manufacturing Engineering
  • Engine Test & New Product Development
  • Failure Investigation and Engineer Support to Aftermarket

Upcoming Bachelor’s or Master’s graduates majoring in Engineering are encouraged to apply online.
