Thriving on a diverse company culture, celebrating the uniqueness of our employees and committed to inclusion. Proud to be an equal opportunity employer. The Ethicon, Inc. business, a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, is recruiting for Electrical Engineering Co-Ops located in Cincinnati, OH for the Spring 2024 term. (1/8/2024 – 4/28/2024)

The Ethicon business offers a broad range of products, platforms, and technologies—including sutures, surgical staplers, advanced energy, robotic surgery, clip appliers, trocars and synthetic mesh devices—that are used in a wide variety of minimally invasive and open surgical procedures. Specialties include support for treatment of colorectal and thoracic conditions, women’s health conditions, hernias, cancer and obesity. The Ethicon business combines products and services of two market leading legacy companies, both with long histories of medical innovation. Ethicon, Inc. based in Somerville, New Jersey, was founded more than 80 years ago, as a pioneer in suture development and manufacturing, helping to transform the safety and effectiveness of open surgery. Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. was created 25 years ago, in Cincinnati, Ohio, developing creative devices that have driven the groundbreaking shift from open to minimally invasive surgery that continues to lead the industry today.

As an Electrical Engineering Co-op at Ethicon, you will have the chance to:

  • Be a contributing member to one of our teams developing: electrical and electromechanical surgical instruments, surgical robotics, electronic operating room equipment, or systems for automated data acquisition, analysis, and visualization
