New Graduate Engineer Program

See what opportunities are available to you as one of our New Graduate Engineers

Our New Graduate Engineer program is designed to hire engineering students earning their bachelor’s degree into full-time regular positions upon graduation. We seek graduating students who have earned engineering degrees in various areas including mechanical, electrical and civil disciplines.

Our intent is to allow the New Graduate Engineer to gain exposure to different groups within the Engineering department including Systems, Design, Plant Support, Reactor Fuels and Technical Services. The new Engineer will earn qualifications within their first year which qualifies them for promotions after their first year of employment.

Interested students are encouraged to meet our representatives at career fairs at their respective colleges and are invited to apply online to our annual Engineer-New Graduate posting on our careers page which opens up each fall.
