Mechanical Industrial Placement
As a Mechanical Engineer you'll be the one who turns ideas into products. You'll be involved in the design, development and testing of complex mechanical systems. In the early stages of a project, you'll apply scientific principles and technical information to generate concept ideas. After this, you'll select the most suitable design and turn it into a viable solution.
Through 3D modelling and a range of analysis tools, you'll create a detailed design of the product that factors in considerations such as materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance – to name just a few.
Our military and commercial programmes require us to push our capabilities and technologies to the limit of what is achievable today. This raises many challenges for the system as it must ultimately meet both our customer’s stringent safety requirements and bring leading edge performance to give competitive advantage wherever applied.
Apply your talent where it counts.
