Electronics Engineering Graduate Development Programme

In Rolls-Royce Control Systems, we provide safety-critical controls and instrumentation expertise to customers around the world. We have decades of experience in supplying solutions to customers in the aerospace markets, and a career here means the chance to get directly involved in developing electronic engine control (EEC) systems. It’s exciting work, especially because you’ll be based in a state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility in Solihull. From research, design and test, to build, modify and develop, everything here is done under one roof. It’s a fantastic environment – one which should inspire you to do work that you can be truly proud of. 

The programme

Our structured Electronics Engineering Graduate Development Programme is designed to give you an immersive, hands-on experience. You’ll get first-class training and support as you learn from some of the most respected and highly qualified professionals in the field. 

What you’ll do

You'll be at the cutting-edge of high-performance, harsh environment electronics, working on the control and instrumentation systems – the ‘brain’ of the engine. Through on-the-job learning, training modules and live project work, you’ll experience the entire engineering lifecycle from design, build, development and test through to service introduction. Whether you’re developing new technologies, testing units, improving current products or designing future control systems, it’s an opportunity to contribute innovations and ideas to product designs for electronics that operate in increasingly demanding, harsh environments. As you develop, you’ll start to test your knowledge and experience on more and more complex challenges. From this foundation, you can choose whether to become a specialist or to develop your leadership experience further.

What you need

We want to see great communication skills and a passion for innovation. Technical knowledge and abilities are a must, so you’ll need a 2:1 BEng or BSc degree, or equivalent. You’ll also need a flexible attitude and lots of initiative.

What you’ll get

  • Competitive salary 
  • Work towards professional membership of bodies such as the IET
  • Bonus schemes
  • A competitive pension
