Materials Engineering has a diverse array of career options. Interns may work with internal manufacturing, outside material and component suppliers, failure investigation, design engineers providing materials specifications and design data, or technology development. Our engineers work on a wide array of materials including most metal alloys, steel, Ni-based alloys, titanium, aluminum, magnesium and cobalt-based alloys, and non-metallic materials such as organic matrix composites and ceramic matrix composites. We are responsible for all specialty manufacturing and repair processes - casting, forging, many types of coatings, joining processes, non-destructive testing, and additive manufacturing. In short almost any materials challenge of interest is tackled by Materials Engineers in Rolls-Royce.


Our interns will work with other materials engineers to apply materials engineering knowledge to a develop, manufacture and support in service advanced state-of-the-art gas turbine engines and will develop an understanding of materials and materials processing vital to these systems.

The candidate will be expected to:

  • Execute materials engineering projects to support manufacturing, design, or service, including project planning and management, experimentation, modeling, and analysis
  • Analyze results and publish reports detailing procedure and conclusions
  • Make presentations on project status and milestones
  • Work with engineering teams to execute larger projects
