General Electric New Graduate Rotational Engineering in Findlay Township, Pennsylvania
Job Description Summary
GE’s Power Conversion business, part of GE Vernova, provides electrification systems that are critical to customers’ power and energy needs for their high-performance applications. We work with some of the world’s major energy, maritime and industrial organizations, helping to enable a transition to energy efficiency and decarbonization through our specialist motors, drives and control technologies.
As a New Graduate Engineer, you will rotate through several engineering departments along with manufacturing, test, and field service to gain exposure to many different parts of the business in a relatively short 12-month timeframe. Upon the completion of the 12-month rotation and training, the engineer will have developed skills while having a better understanding of a career path in which they wish to pursue, as they will have had exposure to many different aspects of engineering that GE Power Conversion has to offer. Learning technical skills while providing solutions to projects in both engineering and commissioning is a way for the new graduate engineer (or entry level professional) to work alongside many multidiscipline and multicultural engineers is what this rotation is about. Finding the best possible match for yourself and company through these rotations is the main goal. The pace is fast, work is technically challenging, and the reward of seeing your software and hardware solutions come to an operational state during commissioning of the applications is unmatched in the industries in which GE Power Conversion services. You will work to design power electronics for turning large AC and DC rotating machines, design high speed control loops for controlling high precision valves, and model electrical distribution circuits all in this short rotational period.
GE Energy Connections’ Power Conversion Division provides Electrical power conversion systems for various renewables, industry, marine, and Oil & Gas applications. Typical scope includes MV & LV drives, motors, transformers, E-house, switchgear, and control as well as the associated power systems engineering.
The New Graduate Engineer’s role would be to rotate through several engineering groups including Power Electronics, Controls & Automation and System Engineering over a period of 12 months. You’ll be introduced to technologies that power equipment from small motors to large propulsion drives and motors that power some of the most powerful ships & critical in the world. You’ll gain experience in modelling of equipment and power distribution networks, along with the programming of control for both industrial and marine applications. In addition to projects in which you will be partnered alongside other experienced engineers, will come several training courses you may elect to attend which will further expand your engineering skillsets, and ultimately give you the opportunity to determine what best suits your skills and desired career path. Upon the completion of the rotation, you’ll work alongside other engineers in one of the 3 engineering groups.
Working at GE Power Conversion, means you are bringing your unique perspective, innovative spirit, drive, curiosity, and ability to question the status quo to a collaborative and diverse team. It means you will have ideas and we will listen. Here, you will have the opportunity to work on very unique and innovative technologies alongside some of the most talented engineers in the field.
