About the programme
Electrical and Electronic Engineering is at the core of our design and integration projects at Babcock.
From fitting-out advanced warship systems, designing the next generation of nuclear power plants or providing a safe, reliable and efficient rail network, we provide 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 or rail engineering to complex nuclear projects.
As part of this programme, we encourage mobility across our sectors to give you a broader experience and wider exposure to our business.
