|We recognize the strengths students can bring to the table and want to utilize and develop up-and-coming talent. That’s why we offer a variety of programs for college students.|
Students participate in real-time projects that are important to the company, quenched with a challenging, innovative environment that allows them to identify and enhance their fullest potential.
| ||We look for students who strive for academic excellence, exhibit a true passion for their work and interests, and who can work well with teams to achieve department and company goals with a great attitude and work ethic.|
We believe in the “whole package” and utilize the different strengths our Co-ops bring to the company. Co-ops commit three semesters to ADTRAN, alternating work and school. The program is designed so that work compliments school and vice versa. Students get exposure to different parts of the company, helping them to narrow their focus. Many of our experienced engineers were one-time ADTRAN Co-ops and it’s our goal to continue in this tradition that has become a crucial part of ADTRAN.
We provide multiple opportunities for training, education, certifications, and real-time work experience. Co-ops work alongside professional engineers and staff on projects that are relevant to the company. Students are exposed to the latest technology and make key contributions. Our vast growth results in a continual need for qualified college graduates, many of whom are recruited directly from our Co-op Program.
Majors recruited: Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, and occasionally Mechanical and Optical Engineering
Minimum GPA requirement: 3.4
| ||Our Technical Internship Program offers qualifying college students a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience before graduation. Internships offers students a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience before graduation.|
While Co-oping is a three semester commitment, internships are during the summer and you can focus on just working instead of juggling classes and working.
We provide a variety of internship opportunities in areas throughout the company such as Hardware and Software Development, Marketing, Research and Development, Technical Support, and Testing.
