Software Engineering

Many of the systems that we create are driven by our own high-performance software. From harsh environments to complex architectures and strict information assurance, our software needs to be proven, reliable and fully integrated. This programme will teach you how to achieve this for everything from an audio console to a handling system on the UK’s largest ever aircraft carriers.

Where you can join us

Places on our Software Engineering graduate programme for Autumn 2018 are available within our Marine (Bristol or Leicester) sector.  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 

As part of a multidisciplinary team, you’ll need to look at the big picture and understand how the software interacts with the system and its interfaces. You could be working on a huge variety of different projects, large and small. You could focus on something as small as an audio console for a communications project. Or you could work on something as large as a handling system on the UK’s largest-ever aircraft carriers. Whatever you work on, you’ll be closely involved in the design, specification and test of software and associated systems.

What you'll get out of it

The range of work you’ll cover will help you figure out where you excel. 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 £28k-£30k.*

What you'll need

This programme is accredited by the IET and IMechE, so you’ll need a 2:1 BEng (Hons) degree that is accredited by one of those institutions too. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment).

*Depending on location, role and qualifications.
