You can also continue to expand your technical skills within the engineering department. Movement between supervisory and technical career positions can occur at many levels.
Why Alcoa Engineering Is Different We believe learning through "hands-on" experience gives our employees the best perspective on our business-and helps them achieve their personal career goals.  Entry-level engineers are teamed up with a senior engineer who serves as a mentor-giving you the chance to tap into their insight and experience. In addition, our engineers are encouraged to take 80 hours of training and take advantage of Alcoa's generous tuition aid program.
