  • Careers that Change Lives

    Make an impact in medicine and engineering with a technology leader in medical devices and therapies. At Medtronic, we improve the lives of more than two people every second. Our paid summer internships expand your skills, test what you know and help you prepare for the next stages of your career.

    Medtronic has 88,000+ employees doing business in 160 countries, and has scientific, manufacturing, education and sales facilities worldwide. Our operational headquarters are located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have summer internship opportunities available across the U.S; including Minnesota, Connecticut, California, Arizona, Colorado, Massachusetts and Florida. Our internships are full-time (40 hours/week), paid positions that are 11-12 weeks in length.

    For summer 2018, students must choose one of the following work periods:

    Cohort 1: Tuesday, May 29 – Friday, August 17

    Cohort 2: Monday, June 18 – Friday, August 31
    We offer housing assistance (for out of state interns), relocation expense reimbursement, and educational and social events throughout the summer.

    With its expanded portfolio of innovative products and services, Medtronic is a preeminent leader in delivering therapy and procedural innovations to address the major disease states impacting patients and healthcare costs around the world. Medtronic provides physicians and clinicians with the therapies to help patients with chronic disease so they can live fuller lives. This includes:

    • Products that restore and regulate a patient’s heart rhythm and improve the heart’s pumping function
    • Therapies for movement disorders, chronic pain and diabetes
    • Products used in bypass surgery, stenting and angioplasty
    • Products for disorders of the cranium and spine, image-guided surgery and ear, nose and throat procedures

    A Day in the Life

    Responsibilities may include the following and other duties may be assigned.

    • This is a temporary position.
    • Responsible for performing and supporting research for teams operating within a service group, or product group and/ or project group.
    • Assists with the development, monitoring, coordination and implementation of technical projects as assigned.
    • Provides analysis, reporting and internal communication services with team members.
    • Develops knowledge of industry and organizational processes.

    Biomedical Interns: Bringing together your interests in medicine and engineering, you will perform and support research related to the design of pacemakers, the development of cardiac pacing therapies, and the treatment of neurological disorders/dysfunctions. In addition to collecting and analyzing physiologic signals, you will construct and design the hardware and software tools necessary to perform experimental protocols. Responsibilities include: design hardware and software tools that allow the human body’s complex signals to be collected and analyzed. Through use of other tools such as Labview, collect and analyze such data; conduct clinical research with patients to determine which features to offer in a particular product or how to improve it for patients and physicians. After analyzing the data collected, evaluate fundamental signal characteristics and test various pacemaker features. Write protocols for collecting clinical data.

    Computer Interns: The four primary areas of opportunity are working on Software Development, Firmware, Software Verification/Test, Firmware Verification/Test. You will use software engineering tools and methods to define requirements and then design, verify, and implement a product. Some software applications are used by physicians in the course of diagnosing or treating patients; other products allow for the analysis of data gathered during pre-clinical or clinical trials. Under the direction of a more experienced engineer, you will prepare plans for your own work, participate in technical reviews, implement advances in current state-of-the-art technology and identify opportunities for productivity and quality improvement. You will test for product integration and verification, conducting those tests based on design specifications, and will prepare formal documentation.

    Electrical Interns: We have summer intern opportunities for Electrical Engineering majors in the areas of product development/design, testing and quality assurance, research, and integrated circuit design. Under the leadership of senior engineers, you will use state-of-the-art engineering tools and methods to design/develop products to be used by physicians including pacemakers, and implantable defibrillators, neuro-stimulators, drug pumps and other implantable medical devices. Depending on position, responsibilities may include: perform design tests to evaluate and verify current designs according to specified results; use data obtained from technician support to verify the functionality of product design and draw conclusions for evaluation; design product components, circuitry, or hardware, from detailed concept descriptions; troubleshoot and problem solve portions of a design project; develop test methodology and specifications and perform such tests; collect and analyze physiologic signals and other data; construct and design the hardware and software tools necessary to perform experimental protocols; design hardware and software tools that allow the human body’s complex signals to be collected and analyzed; use of various tools such as Labview, Matlab, etc.

    Mechanical Interns: We have opportunities in both product design and manufacturing development/design, where under the leadership of senior engineers you will use state-of-the-art engineering tools and methods to either design/develop products to be used by physicians on patients, or further develop the manufacturing methods used to produce those medical technology products.

    ME: Product design/development positions offer opportunity to perform evaluations on mechanical concepts for future technology of implantable devices, and to develop and improve manufacturing methods, systems and processes to produce high quality product at optimal cost. Responsibilities include documenting requirements of design concepts, evaluating mechanical aspects of prototype concepts, performing design tests to evaluate and verify current designs to specified results, using data obtained from technician support to verify the functionality of product design and draw conclusions for evaluation, designing product components, circuitry or hardware from detailed concept descriptions, troubleshooting and problem solving your assigned portion of the design project, and developing test methodology and specifications.

    ME: Manufacturing design/development positions offer opportunity to develop, implement and improve manufacturing methods, systems and processes to produce a high-quality product which meets design specifications at optimal cost. You will determine requirements of manufacturing operations to specify equipment, fixturing, and process parameters; develop plans to evaluate process repeatability and stability through equipment qualification and process validation; continuously improve manufacturing methods, optimize product performance and reduce manufacturing costs; assist with detailed cost analyses of particular manufacturing changes; provide engineering support to manufacturing operation on a routine basis; address product related issues arising on the production floor; recommend appropriate staffing levels to support manufacturing requirements; define and generate all required documentation in support of manufacturing products and processes, including engineering protocols, reports, manufacturing instructions and procedures; and ensure compliance with GMPs and internal protocol.

    Must Have: Minimum Requirements

    • Working towards a BS or MS in Biomedical Engineering or Bioengineering, Computer or Software Engineering or Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering
    • Minimum of 3.0 out of a 4.0 cumulative GPA required
    • Is at a minimum a sophomore in level of standing. To be considered for an internship, graduating seniors MUST have been accepted to a graduate program.
    • To be considered for US-based opportunities, candidates must be legally authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis and must not require sponsorship in the future for an employment visa.
    • Able to participate full time for 11-12 weeks, in 1 of our 2 cohorts:
      • Cohort 1: Tuesday, May 29 – Friday, August 17
      • Cohort 2: Monday, June 18 – Friday, August 31
    • 0 years of experience required

    Nice to Have

    • Prior work on projects in a team environment.
    • Relevant academic projects and/or internship experience helpful.
