On October 1st, Physics, Computer Science and Engineering students and faculty had the pleasure of attending Pizza My Mind featuring Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin is a defense centric organization with four main areas: aeronautics, missiles and fire control, rotary and mission systems, and space. They serve primarily the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. federal government agencies and have locations all across the United States as well as internationally.
Presenters Dennis Coo (Director of Systems Engineering), John Rosebrook (Engineering Leadership Development Manager), Michael Hitt (Systems Engineer Manager), David Kroell (CNU Alum and Software Engineering ELDP), and Anne Baer (CNU Alumna and Systems Engineer) came from the Manassas Headquarters and work in Rotary Missions Systems. There are nine sectors in Rotary Mission Systems: command, control, communications, computer, cyber, combat, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance.
Lockheed Martin has a lot to offer their employees. They have positions available for interns as well as new graduates. Employees are eligible for education assistance to help them earn their advanced degree or professional certifications. Additional benefits include 401(k) Plan, flexible work hours, and PTO. Lockheed Martin goes out of the way to promote a good work-life balance.
In addition to benefits offered by Lockheed Martin, the Manassas area also has a lot to offer. There are a lot of fun things to do in the area including parks, historical sites, and the Air and Space Museum. Manassas is close to Washington DC and several universities including George Mason University. Other things available in the area are good restaurants and shopping.
Lockheed Martin is looking to hire all years and majors. Apply now!
Thank you to Lockheed Martin and presenters Dennis Coo, John Rosebrook, Michael Hitt, David Kroell, and Anne Baer for joining us. We hope to see you again soon!
