Electrical and Electronic Engineering Programme

Job description

Electrical and electronic engineering is everywhere. From fitting out advanced warship systems to designing cutting-edge augmented reality products, we provide our customers with better capability, reliability and availability of their critical assets. You’ll spend between two to four years getting involved in anything from defence engineering to complex nuclear projects.

Where you can join us

Places on our Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme for Autumn 2020 are available in our Cavendish Nuclear, Land and Marine sectors. But no matter which team you join, you could be based anywhere in the UK. That’s why we ask all our graduates to be flexible and willing to move during their programme.

What you'll be doing

Working in a discipline of such fundamental importance means that you could work on anything. You could be on the team designing submarines, refitting warships, or helping to build the UK’s next generation of nuclear power plants. The possibilities are endless. Day-to-day, you could find yourself working on electrical power distribution or electrical control and instrumentation, involving both analogue and digital systems. Our graduates get involved in everything from concept design and AutoCAD layouts to testing, installation, commissioning and handover to clients. You’ll be working within multidisciplinary teams, investigating solutions to engineering problems. You may also find yourself managing projects and leading your own team.

What you'll get out of it

This is a great programme to give you a full overview of what we’re about. You’ll see how important the projects we work on are and how important electrical and electronic engineers like you are to our projects. You’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary of £29k - £31k and we’ll be completely behind you as you work towards Incorporated or Chartered Engineer status.

What we are looking for

A 2:2 BEng (Hons) degree in a related subject area (e.g. electrical and electronic engineering) that is accredited by IET is desirable. You’ll also need to satisfy the MOD’s security requirements (and may need to complete a medical assessment). For our Marine – Plymouth and Bristol programmes we also accept relevant degrees in systems, computing or IT disciplines.
