Surface Combustion: Ignite Your Career With Us

Just as we build the most rugged, reliable thermal processing equipment in the industry, we also train and develop the most talented, well-rounded engineers.

At Surface, we prefer to hire our co-ops as part-time engineers who are interested in building a career, not just looking to fulfill a semester requirement. Your employment at Surface can be maintained during academic semesters…many of our full-time engineering staff began as college co-ops!

As an independent, family-owned company, there is no “one size fits all” co-op curriculum. You will be exposed to all engineering disciplines and will be encouraged to tackle projects that challenge your strengths and enhance your skills. Co-ops have opportunities to collaborate with sales, marketing, product groups, etc., to gain a 360° view of the industry.

The Co-Op Experience: We Understand You Have Questions

  • Will it provide the hands-on training that it promises?
  • How much will I be able to pack into a single semester and still have a relevant, worthwhile experience?
  • How can I keep my part-time job during my co-op?
  • If I’m at a large company, will I get the personal development that I need?

Surface Benefits:

offers competitive salary and benefits including health and dental insurance, disability, life insurance, paid vacations and holidays, 401(k), profit sharing, and wellness programs.

At Surface we look forward to working with our Co-Op students to provide and excellent foundation for a successful career.

“As a non-traditional student, Surface saw the value in my previous job experience, and they allowed me to tailor my co-op program to create a career path that was mutually beneficial. I gained experience in all areas including furnace design, estimating, and sales. The transition from co-op engineer to commissioning engineer was seamless – I graduated on Friday and started full-time on Monday.”
