You’ll follow the journey of one of our products from the initial idea to the design stage, build, test and ultimately arrive at the finished article. Rotating around the business on six-month placements such as Design, Development, Electrical, Research and more, you’ll settle into a specific department for the final part of your programme. There’s also an opportunity to do a three-month commercial placement outside the business to give you a completely rounded view of a career in engineering. The programme combines on-the-job and off-the-job training, and blocks of days where you’ll study at university.
You’ll learn fabrication techniques and put them into practice by producing components as well as models using Computer Aided Design (CAD) - real, technical skills to get you thinking creatively about our processes. Learn from the top engineering professionals in our business - there are no barriers here and you’ll be well supported throughout. You’ll finish with loads of new practical skills, a Bachelor’s Engineering Degree and a job with a global innovator.
