Technical Internship[Japan, Yokohama] Materials Development

Kanagawa-ken, Japan


Role Number:200207482
The people here at Apple don’t just build products — they build the kind of wonder that’s revolutionized entire industries. It’s the diversity of those people and their ideas that inspires the innovation that runs through everything we do, from amazing technology to industry-leading environmental efforts. Join Apple, and help us leave the world better than we found it. Imagine what you could do here? Apple is looking for an extraordinary Material Scientist Intern with coating and optical thin film background to join the PPO (Panel Process and Optics) Engineering Internship Program in Yokohama Technology Center (YTC) of Apple Japan. You will help material and process development of optical coating that is the one of foundations for Apple products. A successful candidate will work within a cross-functional team to realize sophisticated optical thin film and coating technologies.
