WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
There’s so much you could potentially do at Babcock. You might find yourself working on submarine projects or commercial marine programmes. Equally, you might help decommission old nuclear power plants or create new ones. What’s certain is that you’ll immerse yourself in cutting-edge technologies and gain the experiences needed to develop a specialism in this technical discipline.
WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT
You’ll get our full support on your road to becoming an Incorporated or Chartered Engineer – and a competitive starting salary of £28k - £30k. And while you’re working towards it, you can help us get school kids excited about becoming engineers too, through our work with local schools.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You’ll need a 2:2 MEng degree in Chemical Engineering (or similar). And because the programme is accredited by the IChemE, IMechE, IET and RINA, your degree should be accredited by the relevant institution. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
