Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Electrical and electronic engineering is everywhere. From fitting out advanced warship systems to designing cutting edge augmented reality products, we provide our customers with better capability, reliability and availability of their critical assets. You’ll spend between two to four years getting involved in anything from defence engineering to complex nuclear projects.
Where you can join us
Places on our Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduate programme for Autumn 2019 are available within our Marine 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
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, or you could be 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 Ministry of Defence’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.
