CIRCOR offers LAUNCH-Engineers to work across multiple businesses at various locations and gain global, strategic perspective. Participating in the LAUNCH-Engineering program connects you with leaders in the organization, and provides development and mentorship opportunities to navigate through a successful experience.

What you can expect:

  • Exposure to Executive Leadership
  • Variety of Products & Engineering Applications
  • Impactful Rotations
  • Long-term Growth Opportunities
  • Flexibility
  • Competitive Salary & Benefits
  • Collaborative Environment

What we expect:

Hands-On Experience. In-Depth Knowledge.

If your desire is to become a global technical professional, this Engineering program is your
into that career path. This graduate rotation program offers the opportunity to
rotate through two to three assignments, enabling you to obtain hands-on experience and
in-depth knowledge within multiple Technical areas in the Product Development roles.

Engineering & Product Development

Work in a collaborative environment among others with a passion for solving the increasingly challenging needs from customers. During the rotation, you will hold roles that shape the world by designing creative, innovative engineered products for the most challenging severe-service and mission-critical applications in Aerospace, Defense, and complex Industrial Manufacturing. These positions will offer opportunity to not only make things better but also engineer new solutions with new technologies, like finding ways to move large amounts of Lithium Batteries fluids for the production of Electric vehicles, or design control valves solutions operating with extremely hot gases coming from the exhaust of a jet engine or enabling hypersonic missiles and space exploration.

This program gives robust opportunity to contribute and learn in a variety of engineering areas addressing challenges and needs from different markets:

Product ideation sessions, Design Concepts creation (QFD), design-for-performance calculations, complex fluid dynamics simulations (FEA/CFD), CAD Design, DFM (Design for Manufacturability), product testing and validation through post-launch performance confirmation.

Overall, you will gain comprehensive well-rounded experience of all stages of product design.
