For 150 years, Kimberly-Clark has challenged conventional wisdom to reimagine how we can better serve our consumers and impact the world around us. We’ve invented new product categories and built an +$19 billion global business behind top brands such as Kleenex®, Scott®, Huggies® and U by Kotex®. In 2022, Kimberly-Clark is rated by Ethisphere as one of the most ethical companies and by Barrons as one of the 100 most sustainable companies.
Mechanical Engineering Co-Ops typically will experience problem analysis, design, installation, and start-up phases for our projects. Our co-ops have an opportunity to apply their technical training in an industrial environment or working as an integral part of a project team during planning, installation, documentation, and start-up of an ongoing project. Our students develop a broad understanding of mechanical engineering practices necessary to support high speed automated manufacturing processes. Opportunities exist in research offices, manufacturing facilities, and within different business groups.
