Garmin opens software engineering facility at Kansas State University

Submitted by Communications and Marketing

Garmin International Inc. is expanding its engineering internship program through the opening of a new software engineering facility at Kansas State University. The facility is designed to support software engineering, as well as semester-long, part-time software engineering internships throughout the school year and full-time software engineering internships during the summer.

Students who participate in the internship will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with Garmin engineers and will get hands-on experience developing the next generation of Garmin GPS products.

Garmin worked closely with Kansas State University, KSU-IC, The Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce and KBED to open this facility, which is located at the Manhattan/K-State Innovation Center, a 35,000 square foot building located on campus, owned by the City of Manhattan and managed by KSU-IC. It is a state-of-the-art facility comprised of a combination of wet lab, dry lab and office space.

Garmin is currently accepting applications for software engineering interns for the spring 2012 semester, as well as applications for full-time engineering positions. Candidates can apply online by visiting http://www.garmin.com/careers.
