With more than a century of experience, ELECTRIC BOAT has established standards of excellence in the design,
construction and lifecycle support of submarines for the U.S. Navy. Primary operations are the shipyard in Groton, CT, and the
automated hull-fabrication and outfitting facility in Quonset Point, RI, with a current workforce of 10,500 employees.
We offer the following benefits:
Employees looking to further their education may participate in Electric Boat's Technical Education Program. The program
provides full tuition assistance for technical and scientific pursuits. Employees participating in the program have gotten
advanced degrees from institutions such as Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Connecticut, and Penn State.
Employee Rotation Program:
After some time spent on the job, we provide a program that allows engineers to experience other positions at our company.
Employees will gain new insights in problem solving and make new contacts within Electric Boat.
Once a rotation assignment is completed, the employee has new insight to Electric Boat. Their new vision will help them do
their jobs better, and aid in their future success at Electric Boat. Depending on business climate, opportunities may exist
to make rotation assignments permanent.
Electric Boat also offers a program to expose engineers to the "business" of nuclear submarine construction by
participating in the Rotation for Professional Development. Available to engineers with one to five years experience, the
program offers opportunities in the shipyard as trades foremen or ships management, finance, or process improvement to name a
few. The program creates an environment for the engineer to be a leader, add to their skill set, and be part of the entire
process that goes into nuclear submarine construction.
This program helps identify future leaders of Electric Boat by exposing engineers to all aspects of the business, and
giving them the opportunity to make a real difference in the construction of a nuclear submarine.
