    From a Raytheon ad geared towards NACME interns:

    If you’re currently enrolled in an engineering or science degree program (such
    as math, physics, electrical, mechanical, systems, aerospace or software) at an
    accredited university then we want to work with you.
    All that remains is for you to step up to the challenge and “bring it” — that
    is, bring your creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm to the game. Together, we
    can apply them to a real-world environment.

    Once you’re accepted into our Engineering Student Program, we hope
    you’ll continue working with Raytheon until your graduation. By then, we’re
    confident you’ll want to remain with Raytheon – as a full-time employee!
