Lockheed Martin Internship Program 2019

Are you looking for an experience of a lifetime, with immense opportunities for both personal and professional development, and are you ready to spend 5 months at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics’ impressive production facility in Fort Worth, Texas? Then make sure to apply for becoming one of our next interns.


The program is open to engineering students enrolled at a Danish university and currently studying for their Master’s degree within materials- and/or production technology.

The internship is paid and runs from January 2019 until June 2019. You will be part of a group of 5-8 interns who will travel and live together, so strong interpersonal skills and the ability to share a fridge, bathroom, and cleaning duties will come in handy. 

The challenge

Engineering student? Terma offers the internship of a lifetime. Get ready to have your career kickstarted with this unique internship at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Fort Worth, Texas. Here, you will have the opportunity to work on the fighter jet of tomorrow, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II.

Forming the backbone of many of the world’s future air forces, the F-35 multirole fighter aircraft is to be produced in numbers exceeding 3,500. Take part in the massive engineering challenge of increasing production rate, improving workflow, and securing quality to ensure delivery, dependability, and cost reduction with global impact.

Offering internships within three disciplines of engineering, Terma and Lockheed Martin accept applications from students interested in Manufacturing and Quality Engineering.

In addition to experiencing one of the most advanced production lines in the aerospace industry, you will learn from the best as you participate in projects, complete courses, interact with mechanics and fellow engineers, and interact directly with the aircraft. Apply for this internship to learn skills beyond those taught in the classroom.

You as a person

With the internship being based in the US, you are of course fully proficient in English, both oral and written. You will be exposed to the international culture of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics as well as being a part of the local community, and the opportunities for cultural and social experiences will only be limited by your own interest, ability to have an open mind, and engage with new people.

Working within the security industry, it is also important that you have a sound understanding of the importance of company procedures and when to ask before acting.

Further information

We look forward to receiving your application in English, including your CV, grades transcript and picture. If you have any questions, please contact HR Business Partner Peter Rankenberg Thomsen on prth@terma.com
