Research & Development

With more than 45 core technologies—and growing—we’re at the forefront of innovation in nearly every industry you can imagine. In Research & Development, you’ll be part of a constant flow of new ideas, making your mark on a product pipeline that touches millions of people around the world. For example, we’re responsible for 32 components in every laptop computer. And at 3M, the ideas don’t stop—40 percent of our sales in the past year came from markets we weren’t even in five years ago. That explains why Thomson Reuters named 3M among the “Top 100 Global Innovators.” And why, if you’re a technologically savvy professional, you should explore the opportunities in Research & Development at 3M.
