Boeing Repeats as Top Pick for Grads

Engineering and Science Majors Want to Work for Chicago's Giant

For the second year in a row, Boeing has been named the No. 1 employer by engineering and science college students according to the 2003 Universum Undergraduate Survey. The study, produced annually since 1999, polled more than 9,000 undergraduate students at 86 leading universities from December 2002 through February. In a repeat of the survey's 2002 results, engineering and science students named Boeing their "ideal employer." (About 3,000 more students participated in this year's survey as compared to last year.)

"We're honored to be recognized by engineering and science college students throughout the United States," said Norm Bartlett, vice president of Employee Services, Boeing Shared Services Group. "Boeing really is a great place to work, with meaningful work and challenging opportunities."

(Boeing also was ranked the No. 2 company in a reader survey conducted by Women Engineer Magazine, based on both preferable employer and best working environment for women. Lockheed Martin was named the No. 1 company in the Women Engineer reader survey.)

Bartlett noted that the high marks on the two surveys reflect Boeing's efforts to attract and retain a diverse and involved team of employees. "People truly are our strength and competitive advantage," Bartlett said. "While parts of our business have been adversely affected by the economic downturn, we remain committed to being a global employer of choice."

Better Than Disney

Following Boeing in Universum's "ideal employer" top 10 list for engineering and science students were: 3M, BMW, General Electric, Central Intelligence Agency, Pfizer, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Walt Disney, Abbott Laboratories and Johnson & Johnson.

In a related survey, Boeing was recognized as the top supporter of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, according to a recent independent survey of HBCU deans. Career Communications Group, or CCG, publisher of U.S. Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine, conducted that survey.
