Corning

If you’ve touched a phone screen or wearable device today, or communicated across the world, you’ve probably benefited from technology made by Corning. One of the world’s leading innovators in materials science, developing expertise in glass science, ceramics and optical physics over more than 165 years, Corning joined the LGO partnership to bring students on as interns in cutting-edge manufacturing technology projects, as well as recruiting LGOs to their General Manager pipeline rotational program. Corning’s internship projects tend to focus on applying advanced analytics to continuous process manufacturing or to supply chain dynamics.
