Engineering activity

The student will be based with Johnson & Johnson’s Customer Service and Logistics Service Department and will support all 3 divisions of the company: medical devises, pharmaceutical products and other health related products. This will involve working at its Tokyo headquarters as well as its warehouse in Haneda.
