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.
The Land sector generates revenue in excess of £1.6bn and employs close to 11,000 skilled personnel around the globe. Together, we provide vital support for civil and military customers’ large-scale fleets of vehicles and equipment; and we deliver high quality technical training to upskill our clients’ workforce. We operate in challenging, and often highly regulated environments, providing engineering services that are critical, complex and often bespoke. Our graduates have the opportunity to work across multiple industries in the sector, gaining valuable insight into how we help different customers to overcome their particular challenges.
Whilst we have locations throughout the UK, graduates tend to be based in our Greater London, Midlands or Scottish locations, though you will need to be ready and willing to move to other sites throughout your 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 YOU’LL NEED
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.
