Elliott's Rotational Engineering Program

Comprehensive Two-Year Training Program


Elliott's Rotational engineering program is designed to introduce new engineering talent into the organization through a comprehensive two-year training program spanning all business units. Incumbents complete four rotational assignments, each six months in length, covering a variety of engineering career paths including projects, applications, R&D, manufacturing operations, process innovation, and technical/field service. 


The majority of assignments are at the corporate headquarters in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.,  although trainees will spend three to six months in service shop and field-based assignments.


Upon completion of the program, incumbents are placed into positions within the organization where they can best apply their skills and experiences. Final placement could be in our U.S. headquarters, a field or service center facility, or any of Elliott's operations around the globe.



The Rotational Engineering program is an introduction to the rotating equipment industry and is designed to provide new engineering graduates with a comprehensive on-boarding and training experience. Incumbents will acquire an understanding of the Elliott organization, our product lines, and the various engineering processes from application to design to manufacturing and aftermarket services.


Trainees perform engineering assignments designed to develop professional work knowledge and experience. Projects will vary by assignment but will require the application of engineering theory, standard techniques, procedures and criteria consistent with entry-level engineers. 



A four-year engineering degree from an accredited institution is required, preferably mechanical engineering, but industrial, aerospace and chemical engineering will be considered. 


Candidates should possess a strong mechnical aptitude and demonstrated success across academic studies in engineering disciplines. Candidates must be willing to travel as needed and spend up to six months on field and service center assignments.
