About the programme
Scaling new heights. Exploring changing landscapes. Throwing yourself into a whole host of different challenges. All of this is what you can expect when you join our Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme. Both in work, and outside of it. You’ll be based in one of the UK’s most iconic coastal cities – a hub of engineering innovation for more than 500 years.
This is an opportunity to follow in some incredible footsteps.
From fitting out advanced warship systems to designing cutting-edge augmented reality products, you’ll support our customers with better capability, reliability and availability for their critical assets. You’ll spend between two to four years getting involved in anything from defence engineering to complex nuclear projects.
