RTX

RTX (formerly Raytheon Technologies) spans the full spectrum of aviation, space and defense, designing and manufacturing advanced defense platforms, including the Patriot and Joint Strike Missiles. LGO students helped RTX improve the sustainability of their factories, explore how 3D printing can be used in manufacturing missiles, and aligned product design and new manufacturing lines. Before its merger with Raytheon, United Technologies was also a long-time partner of MIT LGO.

At RTX, we’re accelerating ideas to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges by bringing together the brightest, most innovative minds across aviation, space and defense. We form an unrivaled company, with one team coming together across the globe to push the limits of known science and redefine how we connect and protect our world. We are advancing aviation, building smarter defense systems and creating innovations to take us deeper into space.

With more than 30 LGO alumni distributed throughout the enterprise, you will enjoy plentiful opportunities for mentorship and a vast network to accelerate your career path at Raytheon Technologies. Many alumni at RTX pursue careers in program management or operations, while many others pursue careers in a variety of functional areas including engineering, supply chain, business development, strategy, finance, and advanced technology. Whatever your goals or interests, we have an opportunity and a need for your talent.

Rotational & Leadership Development Opportunities: RTX encourages self-directed rotation and it is common for LGO alumni to identify new opportunities after 18 months in role. This is available to all employees but made easier with the help of the alumni network.
