Launch your engineering career working side-by-side with the industry's leading technologists on high-profile projects across the corporation. Intel's Rotation Engineer Program (REP) is a full-time, 18-month technical development program for top college graduates with technical degrees and strong leadership skills.

Technical groups strategically and exclusively select and host program participants for three six-month rotations and provide final placement at the end of the program. Developed through the choice of rotations, as well as special training, mentoring and career coaching, rotation engineers assume influential positions as technical contributors and leaders.

Rotation selection is flexible and based on the rotation engineer's individual skills and career interests as well as the needs of the hosting group. While there's a great deal of variety among rotations, they all share a common feature—each is challenging, is specifically selected to provide a key experience in the growth of the engineer's career, and has a direct impact on the technology development of the group.


Make an impact

We are looking for select talented engineers who are prepared to tackle issues associated with making the most sophisticated technology today. While taking part in the REP, you will work on teams to solve complex and technically challenging problems. More specifically, you will:

  • Select two of three rotations, over an 18-month period, that offer you wide exposure to areas matching your career goals and technical skills.
  • Develop a professional network across Intel including senior management, rotation host managers, and current or past rotation engineers.
  • Immerse yourself in assignments and help your team achieve its project commitments.
  • Increase your visibility, confidence, network, and skills to take on leadership positions.
  • Understand how to make the most of your abilities within the company.
  • Participate in regularly scheduled training events and face-to-face meetings with Intel's technical leaders and business executives.
  • Assume a final placement position in your first host rotation group after graduating from the REP.

    • Electrical Engineering
    • Materials Science and Engineering
    • Mechanical Engineering
    • Physics
  • Undergraduate candidates must have a GPA of 3.5 or better; graduate candidates must have a GPA of 3.75 or higher. Patents and publications are also valued.
