For the past few years, the Amentum internship journey has been an opportunity for college and university students to acquire a well-rounded understanding of company projects and gain valuable experience in the industry.
The Amentum program welcomed more than 140 interns this summer, including some interns who returned from last summer. The internship program is composed of students across the country, from Team Submarine in Philadelphia to the Central Plateau Cleanup Company in Washington state. At the end of the internship, interns are required to give a final presentation. An optional program also provided eight selected students with a $2,000 scholarship for the following school year.
The summer 2022 TEAM SUBMARINE intern program consisted of 24 college students interspersed across program offices at the Washington Navy Yard and the Naval Foundry and Propeller Center in Philadelphia. As a group, the interns visited the Foundry, Newport News Shipyard, Norfolk Naval Station, and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division. As part of their travels this summer, the interns had the opportunity to onboard the USS Washington (SSN 787) and USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79).

Amentum-led WTP Interns
The interns this summer supported the Amentum-led Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) Plant Engineering, Commissioning, Training, Maintenance and Plant Operations teams as we progress towards Melter Heatup next month. The Department of Energy’s Hanford Vit Plant is on a journey to heat up the first of two Melters, the heart of a process that transforms nuclear waste into a glass form safe for storage. This process – called vitrification – will help protect the environment and Hanford’s Rivershore communities from legacy waste.

Amentum-led CPCCo Interns
As part of an initiative to inspire and build the future workforce, Central Plateau Cleanup Company (CPCCo) welcomed 21 interns this summer to join their team in cleaning up legacy nuclear waste at the 580-square-mile Hanford Site in southeastern Washington state. During the internships, college students from numerous universities across the nation gained hands-on experience and side-by-side mentorship with some of the best and brightest employees in the industry.
