Manufacturing Engineering Summer Internship Programme

Designing world-leading power systems is one thing. Actually seeing those designs through to fruition is something else entirely. And that’s where our Manufacturing Engineering team comes in. Join them as a summer intern, and you’ll play a vital role in ensuring we can deliver on our promises, and achieve the most exacting standards. Life in this team is about continually developing processes, acquiring capabilities and exploiting technologies that will keep us at the forefront of global manufacturing. As a summer intern, you’ll gain an appreciation of how we transform ideas into physical products, and billion-pound order books into profitable reality.

The programme

On our Manufacturing Engineering Summer Internship Programme, you’ll be located at one of our manufacturing facilities across the UK. Whether you’re working for us in Civil or Defence Aerospace, Nuclear, Marine or Power Systems, you can look forward to undertaking a substantial project. You’ll be working in capability acquisition, product introduction or continuous improvement, so you’ll gain a deep insight into how we work in one area of the manufacturing lifecycle. Along the way, you’ll learn from true experts and be taught invaluable skills. And if you perform well, you could be invited to join our graduate programme – a fantastic start to a career with one of the world’s most prestigious global 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

The project you undertake will vary depending on business need and where you’re based. You could be part of a team improving a manufacturing process, or be involved in developing technology to help introduce a new product into manufacture. Some of our summer interns will get the chance to work in central teams where they will help to transform the way we undertake manufacturing engineering across all of our facilities. The opportunity to make an impact, and a good impression, is huge.
