Hello Optical Sciences Students and Alumni,

If you’re interested in future opportunities with Raytheon Technologies, I wanted to let you know about a way to get your name and background information to members of our talent acquisition teams from all across our global company – Collins Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon Intelligence & Space and Raytheon Missiles & Defense.

It’s called “R&D and U,” and it allows students to make themselves known to the people who are involved with hiring for:

  • College full-time entry hires
  • Leadership Development Program
  • Student intern and co-op roles

How to participate

  • Just follow this link
  • You’ll find fields to share some information about yourself and upload your resume.
  • Please enter in my name (Benn Gleason) for the “Research Project POC Name”, and Industrial Affiliates as the “Research Project Name” fields

From our legal team

  • Student participation in R&D and U does NOT guarantee you a job, internship, call back or additional information.

How our recruiting works

  • Early-in-career recruiting is ongoing throughout the year.
