The Danaher Summer Internship Program (DSIP) for undergraduate students is a 12-week program that is foundational to the university recruiting initiatives. DSIP creates a funnel of early career talent to fuel our full-time leadership development program Business Operations & Leadership Development Program (BOLD).

A Danaher internship offers the exposure and experience you need to build upon your academic learning. You’ll assume responsibility and ownership on challenging projects that have direct impact to the business. The experience also includes one week of DBS training, exposure to Kaizen practices and lean principles, and the opportunity to interact and network with the intern class at several points throughout the summer. The culmination of our summer is a report-out presentation to a group of Danaher executives from multiple platforms and operating companies. Select interns will be extended full-time offers to enter the BOLD program or functionally aligned roles.

Interns at Danaher have excelled across several areas, and worked on a variety of projects to include:

Supply Chain

Operations (Manufacturing, Industrial, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering)

R&D (Mechanical, Electrical and Biomedical Engineering)

Profile of a successful intern:

“Being an intern was a blast. It was really cool to be able to work with a whole bunch of people from across the country with different backgrounds. It was great to see what everyone did and how they accomplished different goals—and at the end of the summer, to see what we all accomplished together.”
