University engineering program
Launch a focused technical engineering career in R&D, Operations or Quality through the hands-on opportunities of the Edwards University Engineering Program. Pair up with a dedicated senior-level engineer for mentorship guidance — a resource to help you navigate your way through our culture and your professional development as you dive deep into rigorous and appealing projects. Your work will be concentrated in one of four business units: Cardiac Surgery Systems, Critical Care, Heart Valve Therapies, or Transcatheter Heart Valves. The program culminates with direct entry into an engineering role, one that gives you the chance to make your mark in Research, Product Development, Manufacturing, or Quality.
