We find, develop and produce energy resources, every day – energy that’s behind the products that keep us all moving. That’s a challenge we rise to as a team. From creating industry-leading infrastructure to developing new, sustainable technologies, it takes all sorts of people to make our work possible. You could be one of them.

Engineering graduate programmes at BP 

Our BP engineers are at the forefront of developing the latest technologies on some of the largest, most complex projects in the world – while always ensuring safety, efficiency and responsible behaviour are our number one priorities. We need talented engineers to help us continue to drive our business forward. If you want to grow as an engineer and build a rewarding career in oil and gas, our BP graduate programme will give you the responsibility, training and support that you need to take your engineering career to the next step. 

We have opportunities in our automotive, chemical and process, construction, mechanical and wells teams. You could be doing anything from finding oil reserves hidden miles below ground, creating complex construction plans for new sites or designing vital pipelines for safe oil transportation. Whichever area you join, you’ll be able to get involved with an interesting variety of projects using cutting-edge innovations and technologies from day one; and you’ll be part of a team whose skills underpin everything we do.

Our online degree matcher will help you find out where your skills could take you at BP. You can find it on our website. 

Wherever your talents and aspirations lie, we expect a high level of academic achievement. But every bit as important will be the individual attributes and personal qualities you bring to our team.
