About Rockwell Automation

Rockwell Automation was founded in 1903 with a modest investment of $1,000. Since then, the company has proven to be an American success story, becoming one of the world leaders in automation technology with annual sales of $4.3 billion. The company has staked its business in providing diverse products and information solutions to help its clients gain a competitive advantage in the world economy.

Interns are hired in 30 different departments within business and engineering related fields. Their assigned projects help prepare interns for possible future employment with Rockwell Automation, as approximately 50 percent of interns are offered full-time positions after graduation. In addition, networking and social activities are planned to help interns integrate into the company environment and become better leaders.


Most intern/co-op positions are only open to college sophomores, juniors, seniors and grad students, though freshmen may be eligible for some positions. A cumulative GPA of at least 2.75 is required. Related work experience and strong extracurricular and leadership activities are a plus. The majority of intern/co-op participants are studying finance, marketing, MIS/IT, accounting or engineering (electrical, mechanical, computer, industrial or manufacturing). There is also a separate internship program for high school students attending partner schools in the greater Milwaukee/Cleveland areas.
