About the programme
Mechanical Engineering is not one area, but many. Over the course of two to four years, you’ll get to experience the breadth of our work. You might be tackling submarine design projects or warship refits. Equally, you might be working on complex marine projects, fleet maintenance, rail engineering or nuclear programmes. The possibilities are incredibly varied.
As part of this programme, we encourage mobility across our sectors to give you a broader experience and wider exposure to our business.
Mechanical Engineering at Babcock
You could work in anything from mechanical design right through to manufacture, installation and decommissioning. Equally, you could work on analysis and problem-solving for existing equipment or systems.
What’s not in doubt is that there will be plenty of onsite work, such as implementing designs, finding solutions to installation issues, and liaising with designers and office-based engineers.
You’ll also get involved in project management too, engaging with stakeholders, planning delivery and ensuring projects run to budget and programme.
What you'll need
