Margaret Ingels Engineering Development Program

Margaret Ingels Engineering Development Program

United Technologies Corporation (UTC) was founded by some of the world’s greatest inventors. We helped build the second industrial revolution and brought about a century of urbanization and globalization. Today, we are the world’s leading aerospace supplier, maker of elevators and escalators, and developer of intelligent building systems. We need your help to build the smart city and air transportation systems for the next century. 


Our engineering development program is named after Margaret Ingels. She was the first 
American woman to receive a professional degree in mechanical engineering. She was the first female engineer at Carrier (now part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security), was a close associate of Willis Carrier and spent a distinguished technical career at the company. One of her significant technical accomplishments was the development of the sling psychrometer, a device for the measurement of relative humidity of air.

UTC’s Ingels Engineering Development Program is an entry-level rotational program for top engineering students around the world sponsored by the UTC Chief Technology Officer. 


You will be working with a passionate, diverse group of people who share a common ambition to change the world for the better. The goal of this two-year rotational program is to expose you to the immensely broad array of products and technologies that comprise UTC’s portfolio, put you on the front line of business-critical assignments to stretch your capabilities and build your real-world knowledge, and give you the opportunity to build some of the most complex and most impactful products that our society makes. Through this program, we seek to identify and prepare the next generation of top technical talent at UTC.

Program Rotations

Every field of engineering (all engineering degrees and majors are accepted) across:

Pratt & Whitney (US, Puerto Rico, and Canada)

UTC Aerospace Systems (US and India)

UTC Climate, Controls & Security (US)
