Naval Architecture Summer Placement - Barrow

Job description

As a Naval Architect, you won’t just be involved in the design of vessels but will be able to get involved with aspects of manufacture through to launch, test and commissioning.

What you will be doing

Naval Architecture is a whole boat engineering discipline. This means that as a Naval Architect you’ll not only be involved in the design of vessels, but also all aspects of manufacture right through to launch, test and commission. In the case of our businesses, you’ll work to ensure that our surface ships and submarines do what they should do. A large part of the work involves computer based design. However, you’ll also get extensively involved in other activities too – such as computer simulation modelling and physical model tank testing.

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.

You will also be provided with the opportunity to experience a broad range of complex equipment and systems at different stages of the engineering lifecycle.

Security / export control statement
Please be aware that many roles working for BAE Systems will be subject to both security and export control restrictions. These restrictions mean that factors including your nationality, any previous nationalities you have held, and/or your place of birth may limit those roles that you can perform for the organisation.

Diversity and inclusion statement
We are an inclusive employer. Recruiting, retaining and inspiring the best people from the widest pool is vitally important to us. We encourage and welcome applications from all sections of society and are happy to discuss reasonable adjustments and/or additional arrangements you may need to support your application.

If you want to be part of our future working in partnership with the Royal Navy, then a career in Maritime Services awaits you.
