Type of opportunity:
Our Mechanical Engineers turn ideas into products. This involves 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 factor in considerations such as materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance – to name just a few.
Our 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.
To apply, you’ll need to be on course for achieving a 2:2 Bachelor’s degree and also have a Mechanical Biased degree.
Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.
We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year
Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers.
