Dupont Early Career Engineer
DuPont currently has multiple opportunities in both the Field Engineering Program and direct hire programs.
The DuPont Field Engineering Program is a rotational program and has existed since 1903. It provides you with early-career opportunities to experience the diversity of DuPont in a series of two- to three-year assignments leading towards a career path. These assignments offer early career development by experiencing several types of jobs in different DuPont businesses at different sites. A minimum of two assignments is required, each being 2-3 years in length. Geographic flexibility is a requirement while active as a Field Engineer.
Engineers also hire directly into sites outside of the Field Engineering Program. This does not include a requirement of geographic flexibility, but it may require relocation to the job location.
Typical first assignments include:
Manufacturing Technical / Process Engineering - Provide technical support to a production area. The engineer’s activities may include improving an existing manufacturing process by increasing product yield, quality, or equipment utilization; or aiding in short-term process or product development programs.
Maintenance / Reliability Engineering - Ensure that manufacturing equipment is properly installed, monitored, and maintained to operate with maximum efficiency and safety. This may include: trouble-shooting equipment reliability problems, implementing corrective design and repair activities, applying advanced reliability tools to diagnose root causes, and developing predictive/preventive maintenance programs for equipment and facilities.
Research and Development - Apply engineering principles to task areas ranging from fundamental research on new processes and products to development of work to improve and/or diversify existing product lines. Laboratory, pilot plant, or full-scale production tests are used by the engineer to accomplish process technology and product advances.
Environmental Engineering - Find technical solutions for environmental compliance, including waste minimization, waste disposal, permitting and waste remediation. The environmental engineer supports the DuPont core mission of sustainable growth-increasing value to society while reducing our environmental footprint.
Process Control - Develop systems to monitor and control manufacturing processes and equipment. Activities include developing, designing, applying and/or trouble-shooting instrumentation, electronic circuitry and computer hardware and software for a wide variety of chemical and mechanical processes.
Project and Design - Implement capital projects to build new or improve existing facilities. Responsibilities include reviewing basic data, developing project justification and scopes, coordinating design, and managing project construction.
Energy / Power Systems - Provide electrical and instrument engineering support for power and utilities facilities located at manufacturing locations. Activity includes design, installation and maintenance of equipment and technology
