Job Description

Description

For more than 90 years, Caterpillar Inc., has been making sustainable progress possible and driving positive change on every continent. Customers turn to Caterpillar to help them develop infrastructure, energy and natural resource assets.

 

With 2017 sales and revenues of $45.462 billion, Caterpillar is the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. The company principally operates through its three primary segments – Construction Industries, Resource Industries and Energy & Transportation – and provides financing and related services through its Financial Products segment.

 

The Engineering Development Program (EDP) is a flexible twelve month program that addresses the onboarding needs of engineers and technologists hired directly into their full time positions.

 

JOB PURPOSE:  As an entry level, engineering degreed position, job assignments are planned to provide experience and familiarization with the technical staff, methods, practices and programs of the company and assigned area.

 

JOB DUTIES:  The key role of this entry level engineering position is to learn and assist: to gain an understanding of Caterpillar’s business, products, systems and procedures; to learn and develop skills which result from the practical application of basic engineering knowledge; and to provide assistance to a project team or others in the work group.  Projects will usually be of short duration and work results will affect those working on the same project or assignment.  Typically, decisions will impact routine, low risk issues that may affect the project team, suppliers or internal customers.  Challenges include applying theory, learning procedures and understanding the technology.

 

Key areas of responsibility encountered in this role may include any or all of the following: perform needs analysis and initiate ideas; evaluate new products, processes or systems; communicate results to customers, suppliers, team members, and other business units; contribute to the design of new products and processes; perform product and process maintenance; support other engineers, managers, marketing personnel, customers and suppliers.

 

Attention to detail is critical.  Uses readily available clear and direct references and provides straightforward solutions to problems.  Collects and evaluates data and develops plans for assignments.  Associate Engineers may expect to have direct contact with other team members, customers and suppliers.

 

Engineers must manage their own development, continuously learning through experience and staying abreast of technology changes.  Learning will focus on methods, processes and systems applied to engineering functions, key engineering skills, practical application of theory, communications and building a knowledge of Caterpillar’s products, suppliers and customers.

 

Professionals within the program must be willing to travel and relocate domestically.

 

Applicants will be considered for positions throughout the United States.

 

 

At Caterpillar, you build what matters – whether it’s the career you want, crucial work skills, strong relationships or new digital technologies.  There are big jobs to be done worldwide – building critical infrastructure, bolstering local economies, meeting the demand for energy – and that work is powered by our people.

 

Every single Caterpillar employee moves our company forward. Piece by piece, part by part, person by person. Together we create sustainable, world-changing solutions that impact lives around the globe. Join our winning team and help build a better world.
