Collins is a world-class organization in aerospace and defense, but I chose to join their ranks for their incredible corporate culture.  Their organizational mission of Redefining Aerospace goes beyond mere process innovation.  Collins' mission is acutely focused on ushering the next generation of leaders into a culture that is designed for their success.  I am beyond confident that I made the right decision to join Collins Aerospace.

My favorite aspect of Collins is meeting people with so much passion for their jobs.  The people aspect is why I took the position, and why I have stayed.  I have a group of female engineers that are the best support team I could imagine.  Whether it's on the engineering or operations side of manufacturing, our continuous improvement culture proves that we have what it takes to maintain our position as one of the leading aerospace companies. Johnnie P. Senior Engineer, Collins Aerospace
Joshua Testimonial Portrait
Collins Aerospace has given me opportunities that I could have never dreamed of!  If you would have told me a few years out of college that I would be able to lead the development on multiple military helicopter programs and help provide clean water across the globe, I never would have believed you.  Collins has given me unbelieveable opportunities to grow my career and make a positive impact on the world with our Engineers Without Borders chapter.  We truly are redefining aerospace while positively impacting the world. Joshua K. Value Stream Leader,  Collins Aerospace

Megan Testimonial Portrait
I knew when I left the USCG that I wanted to pursue a life as an engineer, [where] I would be able to further my impact on the world in a different capacity. With Collins Aerospace, I can continue my humanitarian work through Engineers Without Borders — a nonprofit that takes on engineering projects to help communities around the world meet basic human needs. I am so glad to take a stand with Raytheon Technologies in making the world a better place, one project at a time. Megan L. Mechanical Engineer, Collins Aerospace
Tyler Testimonial Portrait
My journey within our company began in 2015 as a Systems Engineering Intern at Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Now, five years later, I am a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and a full-time Data Scientist in one of our offices in the Greater Boston Area. No matter what program I’ve been working, from aircraft displays and communication systems to automatic target recognition software, I always appreciate Raytheon Technologies' commitment to developing educated young talent.
