Careers

 

Whether you define, design, prototype, standardize, validate, integrate, test and/or refine our world-class products, collaboration will become one of your greatest strengths. You can start in a specific role and gain an understanding, technical knowledge and experience of associated roles where you can actually make a difference for our customers.

You will work with a wide variety of products, ranging from single component updates to entire engine sub-systems. You can utilize your knowledge of specs and standards to interpret and resolve problems, as well as ensure the right power and fuel efficiency to match our customers’ needs.

You could also work with teams to meet and exceed regulatory compliance, as well as deliver solutions that provide competitive advantages. In all aspects of engineering at Cummins, you’ll be involved in testing performance of our engines, fuel, air-handling, lubrication, and after-treatment systems. You’ll also learn, participate in, and lead process improvement efforts (Six Sigma).
