Mechanical Engineering Industrial Placement - Barrow in Furness

Job description

Our Mechanical Engineers turn ideas into products. This involves the design, development and testing of complex mechanical systems.

What you will be doing

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.

Security / export control statement
Please be aware that many roles working for BAE Systems will be subject to both security and export control restrictions.

We are an inclusive employer. Recruiting, retaining and inspiring the best people from the widest pool is vitally important to us.
