About Caterpillar Inc.

Known for its yellow tractors, Caterpillar Inc. is the world’s largest producer of construction and mining equipment, industrial gas turbines, and diesel and natural gas engines. The progeny of a 19th century steam tractor scheme, Caterpillar was officially established in 1925; the company’s distinctive caterpillar track design (which helped inspire crawling tanks) debuted in World War I. Since then, the company has produced heavy machinery for use in the energy, mining, forestry, road-building and transportation industries in more than 200 countries.

Caterpillar’s Corporate Intern Program offers positions in several areas, including accounting, communications, engineering, finance, HR, environmental health and safety, IT, logistics, marketing, manufacturing and sales. Interns are given the opportunity to tour Caterpillar manufacturing and research facilities, attend social events and network with Caterpillar employees.


Open to full-time students at four-year universities who will have completed at least one year prior to the start of the internship. Applicants should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 and be legally authorized to work in the United States.
