You love nothing more than tackling complex problems. Innovating. Thinking about how things could work better. And that’s exactly the kind of mindset we look for in our engineers. This summer internship will give you fantastic exposure. You’ll see how we approach some of the world’s most complex challenges – and discover how you might help us solve them in future.

The programme

On this 10 week programme, you’ll gain practical experience on real-life assignments that will put your theoretical knowledge to the test. Along the way, you’ll work alongside experts and be taught valuable skills. You might get a chance to join our graduate programme too – a fantastic start to a career with one of the world’s most prestigious companies.

If you are a student member of an institute, experience gained on your internship can be used to credit some of your learning towards your graduate programme and chartership status, should you choose to join us.

What you’ll do

As an intern, you’ll learn from skilled professionals and your work will be in support of a real business need, with a direct link to our products and customers. It makes for a brilliant opportunity to share your ideas and make a difference. Not only will you receive on-the-job training, you’ll develop a host of transferable skills. Your day-to-day tasks will vary and you’ll receive support from different people within the business, all of whom will be committed to helping you to deliver your best.

What you’ll need

You should be creative and agile in your approach with great communication skills and a passion for problem solving. Technical abilities are a must, so you’ll need to be on track to achieve at least a 2:1 bachelor’s degree in Engineering, Maths, a relevant Physical Science or Computer Science, or equivalent qualification. Flexibility is important too, as you could be based at any of our sites.

What you’ll get

  • £17,850 pa (pro rata)
  • Learn from experts
  • The chance to join our graduate programme if you perform well
  • Leisure facilities and numerous sports societies
  • An inclusive, welcoming environment – we know that the more diverse we are, the stronger we can become
