Edison Engineering Development Program
- Edison Engineering Development Program
The Edison Engineering Development Program (EEDP) is one of General Electric's six corporate entry level programs. Focused on engineering, the program aims to "develop technical problem-solving skills through advanced courses in engineering and technical projects that are aligned with business objectives".Typically each GE business runs its own program, and candidates are required to apply for and rotate within the program at a specific business.
"EEDP is one of the most distinctive programs at GE," says Nancy Martin, manager of leadership business development for entry-level talent and new employees. Martin is responsible for overall execution of and strategy for EEDP, which counts many of today's company leaders among its graduates.
EEDP, the oldest of GE's rotational programs for new BS grads, provides four assignments over two years. Assignments are driven by real GE business priorities, which may include working with systems, analysis, design, quality, reliability, integration and testing. Program members develop and enhance their technical problem-solving skills through advanced engineering course work, reports and team presentations. Another benefit of EEDP is the opportunity to earn a masters in engineering while in the program.
First-year EEDP participants are required to take GE's engineering "A course," which is designed to sharpen technical and problem-solving skills. The "B course" applies technical skills to actual business proposals. Program participants can get their masters in engineering through the distance education program of either Georgia Institute of Technology or RIT.
