Visteon Named Employer of Year By UM Dearborn: For the past five years, the Van Buren Township-based automotive supplier Visteon Corp. (NYSE:VC) has been giving rewarding on-the-job opportunities to qualified engineering students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. The university recently acknowledged this growing partnership, naming Visteon “Employer of the Year” for providing a growing number of quality internship and cooperative education opportunities to UM-Dearborn students. Since 2009, Visteon has provided about 40 U-M Dearborn students with summer internships or work-study opportunities — mostly in electrical, mechanical and computer engineering — at its corporate offices and innovation center in Van Buren Township. About half of the college interns that Visteon has hired over the past five years graduated from UM-Dearborn, and of the 36 interns and co-op students working at the company this summer, 20 are from the university’s College of Engineering and Computer Science. Each year a CECS advisory council selects a Co-op Employer of the Year based on positive student comments about their experiences, along with faculty nominations. Visteon was selected for its strong and growing partnership with the university, which provides students with on-the-job experience at a multi-billion dollar global automotive supplier, and gives Visteon access to talented prospective engineers.
