The programme

Our 10-week summer internship programme is designed to give you both insight and experience. You’ll learn from some of the most respected and highly qualified professionals in their field, gaining practical experience on real-life assignments that will put your theoretical knowledge to the test. Along the way, you’ll work be taught valuable skills. You could even have the chance to join our graduate programme – a fantastic start to a career with one of the world’s most prestigious companies.

If you are a student member of an institute, experience gained on your internship can be used to credit some of your learning towards your graduate programme and chartership status, should you choose to join.

What you’ll do

As an intern, you’ll be assigned an engineer as your line manager, so you’ll be learning directly from a skilled professional. And all of the projects you do will be in support of a real business need, with a direct link to our products and customers. It makes for a fantastic opportunity to share your ideas and really make a difference. Not only will you receive on-the-job training, you’ll also get exposure to project management and develop a host of transferable skills. Your day-to-day tasks will vary, and you’ll receive support from a number of different people within the business, all of whom will be committed to helping you to deliver your best. Your placement will be in either our Civil Nuclear or Submarines division.
