WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

When you’re trying to anticipate what might happen as a system develops, you need to look at the big picture and zoom in on the tiny details. And when you’re dealing with systems as complex as submarines, that’s quite an undertaking. 

You will be working alongside experienced design engineers and managers, utilising your ability to apply Systems Thinking and your understanding of the interaction and interfaces between electrical, mechanical, nuclear process and structural engineering systems. You will develop the requirements, paying particular attention to the integration of the various disciplines, and specify the test and commissioning processes for new and modified designs. These designs will relate to the facilities and equipment used directly in support of the maintenance of the Navy’s critical assets. You will have the opportunity to use the Facilities Engineering VR suite and smart screens to support the visualisation, communication, review and presentation of the designs. You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team that will include Electrical, Mechanical and Civil Engineering specialists. Your work will support the safe, continued operation of our facilities and hence the Royal Navy’s ships and submarines.

WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT

The range of work you’ll cover will help you figure out what you excel at. And once you know that, we’ll help you go as far as you can. We’ll support you as you work to become an Incorporated or Chartered Engineer and give you a competitive starting salary of £29k - £31k.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’ll need a 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree. And because the programme is accredited by the IMechE and IET, it is desirable that your degree is accredited by one of those too. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).
