About the programme

Metallurgy and Materials Engineering is integral to the Royal Navy’s fleet of submarines and warships. Over the course of two years, you will experience first-hand the breadth of activities required to support these vessels, working on complex, high-integrity engineering systems. You will investigate new technologies to make these activities more efficient and effective.

Metallurgy and Materials Engineering at Babcock

Working in a discipline with such fundamental importance to platform integrity means that you will experience all parts of a vessel’s lifecycle – assessment of design, development of weld procedures, non-destructive and destructive testing, engineering critical assessment, and failure mode investigations. In the process, you may work with 3D laser/optical scanning for corrosion mapping.

There may be opportunity to learn about automatic welding processes involving mechanised and robotic systems, electron microscopy and x-ray analysis of microstructures and fractures, computer tomography with digital radiography, and remotely operated inspections for nuclear systems. In addition to this, there may be chance to work with catapult companies and university research enterprises. You will work alongside experienced metallurgists to gain hands on experience in a fast paced and fluid working environment to build on your academic qualifications.

What you'll need

  • A 2:2 BSc/BEng (Hons) degree in Materials Science/Engineering, Metallurgy or other Engineering discipline
  • To be able to satisfy the MoD’s, and our customer’s security requirements (you may need to complete a medical assessment)

What you'll get

When you’re part of the team at Babcock, we think it’s only right that you’re properly rewarded for the contribution you make and the hard work you put in. That’s why, in addition to a highly competitive salary, you can look forward to generous pension and employee share schemes, and a whole host of other flexible benefits.

These include things like access to our healthcare cash plan, Wellbeing Centre and discounts on everything from gym membership and travel to retail, dining and entertainment. You’ll also have the chance to get involved in our STEM outreach and volunteering activities, which our graduates find incredibly rewarding in all sorts of other ways.
