As a Signalling and Communication Systems placement student you will help to support and deliver the technical aspects of a variety of multidisciplinary designs across a range of challenging and exciting projects in the UK and internationally. We operate across a range of markets including Cities & Development, Energy, Environment & Geoscience, Transportation and Water.
As transport infrastructure experience’s unprecedented investment, join us in Signalling and Communication Systems and help us to shape the future of transport by helping our clients deploy the latest Transport Systems technologies to provide safe, punctual, fast and environmentally efficient journeys to millions of people.
You’ll deliver the technology systems that will help our clients manage and optimise tomorrow’s transport infrastructure. Our teams drive innovative projects from industry leading signalling systems and smart motorway solutions to control centres and real-time passenger information. We advise on everything from strategic direction to the detailed design, installation and commissioning of systems on our client’s infrastructure.
So, you can look forward to plenty of variety from testing systems on site to exploring next generation technologies and design solutions.
Adventurous spirits. Impressive advances. This is your opportunity to work with one of the world’s leading consultancies.
As a placement student you could find yourself in one of the following locations:
You’ll be involved in:
You could work across each of the following teams:
The key responsibilities of the Engineering Management team are:
The Signalling Scheme Development Design Team is part of the wider Signalling and Communication Systems Practice. This team will develop a Signalling Project from its earliest stage, drawing out the client requirements, engaging with stakeholders then determining what is possible for the technology involved. The work from feasibility studies, optioneering through to scheme plan and outline design to gain ‘approved for construction’ status. Jobs range from small scale alterations (such as introducing longer trains or laying a new junction) through to major area re signalling schemes, utilising the latest technology.
Key responsibilities are:
Our signalling design teams are at the very core of our Signalling and Communications Systems Practice. Working with some of the most experienced engineers in the UK railway our design staff are trained in the design of a wide variety of technologies used in the safe control and operation of the rail network. They take the output from the scheme development team and turn it into detailed designs for lineside equipment, control systems and safety critical electronic interlocking systems which can then be manufactured, installed and commissioned on the live railway. Our design teams work with engineering managers, project managers and designers from all other engineering disciplines to turn concept designs into reality. Every project is unique, employing different technologies, systems and equipment and our work is safety critical.
Key responsibilities are:
The Transportation Technology team is part of the wider Signalling and Communication Systems Practice within the Transportation business. We design and deliver cutting edge technology to improve the safety and efficiency of the road network. We are use a range of technologies such high speed networks, digital CCTV, radar, LED signs and control systems to monitor and manage traffic. We ensure that end to end systems are designed, delivered and commissioned. We are involved in a range of projects from leading edge initiatives on intelligent mobility to the practical aspects such determine equipment locations, cabling and power designs. Our range of expertise is applied during all stages of a project lifecycle from initial conception through preliminary design, detailed design, construction, commissioning and handover. We make extensive use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) which enables 3D models to be created by our engineering teams in coordination with other disciplines. We encourage innovation ideas within our team for all our design solutions at all levels of individual experience.
Key responsibilities are:
When you join us, you’ll be empowered to be the professional you want to be, working on projects you can feel proud of.
