One of the world’s largest manufacturers of specialty chemicals, Rohm and Haas has been churning out products for almost a century. Founded in Germany in 1907, the company set up shop in Philadelphia in 1909 and later became independent. The company has come a long way from its start in leather tanning chemicals; today it produces scores of chemicals and synthetics used behind the scenes in a myriad of consumer products. In fact, the firm serves nine major industries: building and construction, electronics, food, household goods and personal care, industrial and manufacturing, packaging and paper, pharmaceutical and medical, transportation and water. One Rohm and Haas product does go straight from source to shelf, though: Morton Salt (the fruit of a 1999 merger with Morton International). The Dow Chemical Company acquired Rohm and Haas on April 1, 2009.
Rohm and Haas co-ops and interns serve in a variety of engineering roles. Examples of intern assignments include project management; sizing, purchasing and supervising installation and startup of equipment; process modeling; procedure writing; reliability improvement; and process and equipment trouble shooting.
Open to college sophomores, juniors and seniors and grad students. Chemical and mechanical engineering majors are preferred. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
