Ethicon Engineering Development Program

We want you to write your own success story, spark bold innovations and become an expert at what truly interests and inspires you. If you’re ready to take on the world's biggest health challenges in a collaborative, supportive environment—and make a difference in the lives of people everywhere—set out on your path today with the power of the world's largest broadly-based healthcare company behind you.

The Program
The Ethicon Engineering Development Program (EDP) provides new college graduates with opportunities to make real-world contributions to the surgical devices of the future. Located at Ethicon's Cincinnati campus, the program offers multidisciplinary rotations in areas such as medical devices design, manufacturing, quality and sustaining engineering across all stages of the new product development process. Upon successful completion of the two- to three-year program, EDP associates will continue in challenging engineering roles and help develop tomorrow’s surgical innovations.

The Opportunity
As an associate in the EDP, you’ll:

  • Complete multidisciplinary rotations throughout the life cycle of the medical product development process over a two- to three-year period
  • Have access to a strong support network of seasoned engineers and mentors who will help guide your technical and professional development
  • Leverage cutting-edge technologies, academic learnings and fundamental engineering principles to contribute to design solutions in a dynamic, team-focused environment
  • Collaborate with external partners and colleagues across Johnson & Johnson to identify and implement project solutions
  • Continue your academic growth and development through a mix of on-the-job, virtual and in-classroom training modules on topics such as anatomy, 3-D modeling and simulation, FEA, Six Sigma, statistics, design for manufacturability, assembly and component material analysis, and more

Are You Ready to Make a Difference?
EDP participants will learn what it takes to be a world-class engineer—and how to deliver value—through hands-on experience designing, testing and manufacturing cutting-edge surgical devices. While accelerating your career path, we'll also focus on your personal development through mentorship, networking opportunities, access to an alumni network and so much more.

Considering a Co-Op Opportunity?
Many of the associates hired into the Engineering Development Program started out on their paths by participating in Ethicon’s Co-Op Program. This program, which spans from three to five months, offers enrolled college students the ability to make real-world contributions to the surgical devices of the future.
