Traditionally, internships at Northrop Grumman (NG) were all in HR or Engineering. In 2020, Northland and NCAT helped NG stand up the first ever technician level internship with a job requirement of Aviation Maintenance with UAS focus. NG is willing to work with Northland students and sees the value of those students. NG understands what it means to their corporation. These opportunities give students real-world operations experiences. These same opportunities enable NG to see and work with individual students; some of them become NG employees following.
