WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
The possibilities are many and varied. You might be helping to modernise facilities and infrastructure, or designing cutting-edge structures for the nuclear industry. We do a lot of work for the MOD, which alone offers a whole world of varied opportunities. You might even work with the Royal Navy to adapt the UK’s dockyard services to meet the demands of a modern naval fleet. Whatever you work on, you can be sure you’ll be making a real difference to everyday life in the UK.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
We’re passionate about learning. And we encourage our people to pursue accreditation with professional bodies – especially our engineers. We’ll support you on the road to Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status – and give you a competitive starting salary of £28k - £30k. So after the programme you’ll be ready to take on your first permanent role as an engineer.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
A 2:2 MEng (Hons) degree is vital. And because the programme is accredited by the IMechE, IET, RINA, ICE, and IOP, your degree will need to be accredited by the relevant institution too. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
