Nestle Nutrition Industry Information Session

Sep 29, 2014, 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Nestle Nutrition is coming for an Industry Information Session. Along with general information about the company, they will be talking about their internship program. This event takes place in Parker 118.

Product Development Intern

Each intern will receive a project assignment related to some aspect of ongoing research and/or product development related to infant or toddler foods either already in-market or being developed for launch within Nestlé Nutrition. Interns will be exposed to all phases of the product development process, including benchtop/lab scale development, pilot scale development, experimental design, analytical methods development, and sensory testing. Interns will work under the supervision of an experienced mentor and will be expected to provide regular updates, as well as develop and present a preliminary research plan, mid-term progress report and final presentation of results. All work will be hands-on. There will be multiple opportunities to interact professionally and socially with other interns both within product development and cross-functionally.

Three - six month duration. Start timing is flexible, but target would be late May/early June 2015.
