Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Electrical and electronic engineering is everywhere. Transport networks. Renewable energy. Even ventilation. You name it, there’s an electrical system in it. We take care of those systems for our clients’ most important products and services. You’ll spend between two and four years getting involved in anything from oil and gas to submarine projects.

Where you can join us

Places on our Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduate programme for Autumn 2018 are available within our Marine (Bristol or Leicester), Marine (Clyde), Marine (Plymouth or Keynsham [Bristol]), Marine (Rosyth), Land and Nuclear sectors. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing 

Working in a discipline of such fundamental importance means that you could work on anything. You could be on the team designing submarines or refitting warships. Equally, you could be working on one of our projects in oil and gas, or helping to build the UK’s next generation of nuclear power plants. The possibilities are endless.

Day-to-day, you could find yourself working on electrical power distribution or electrical control and instrumentation involving both analogue and digital systems. Our graduates get involved in everything from concept design and AutoCAD layouts to testing, installation, commissioning and handover to clients. You’ll be working within multidisciplinary teams, investigating solutions to engineering problems. You may also find yourself managing projects and leading your own team.

What you'll get out of it

This is a great programme to give you a full overview of what we’re about. You’ll see how important the projects we work on are, and how important electrical and electronic engineers like you are to our projects. You’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £28k-£30k* and we’ll be completely behind you as you work towards Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status.

What you'll need

A 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree in a related subject area (e.g. Electrical and Electronic Engineering) that is accredited by the IET is vital. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment). For our Marine (Plymouth and Bristol) programmes, we also accept relevant degrees in Systems, Computing or IT disciplines.
