We believe in placing students in a challenging environment in which they are allowed to, and expected to, take on a lot of responsibility and in which they will learn a vast amount during their year with us. The more keen and capable you are, the more experience you will gain. The work is varied and exciting; covering all aspects of the design cycle.

Our hope is that those who excel will come back. A high percentage of the team currently at Lighthouse Systems have joined us through this programme.
