Boeing Accelerated Student Experience

WHAT is BASE?

Looking to challenge yourself outside the classroom? Are you an innovator, change agent, or thought leader? Do you want to see how your major actually fits within a Fortune 50 global enterprise?

At Boeing, we don’t just build amazing products, we push boundaries, fearlessly innovate, and help define the future. The Boeing Accelerated Student Experience (BASE) program is designed around you. You’ll be given the opportunity to test your own limits and experience first-hand the innovation and challenges of the aerospace industry. At BASE, students will:

Engage: Collaborate with other students from some of the world’s best universities and employees from around the company to learn how your passion can take flight at Boeing.

Enrich: Dive into the world of aerospace with a first-of-its-kind, real-time challenge designed to get you thinking creatively and working cross-functionally with students in and outside of your major.

Explore: Get a behind-the-scenes tour of Boeing’s production facilities, hear from leading innovators in flight and space, race the streets of downtown cities in a winner-takes-all scavenger hunt – this is not your typical experience – this is BASE.
