The Engineering Degree Apprenticeship offers a wide and exciting variety of opportunities in a broad spectrum of Engineering disciplines. These varied disciplines will provide you with the opportunity to engage in a range of design and test activities, from detailed requirements and performance analysis, generation of test procedures and reviewing of evidence, to writing technical specifications and contributing to the ongoing development and qualification of vital submarine structures, systems and equipment.
During your Engineering Degree apprenticeship you will be given visibility of a range of engineering disciplines in which a personal development plan will be created for your learning and development needs associated with your role. This includes bespoke technical training along with engineering placements around the business. The following discipline specific apprenticeship roles are currently available and are supported by an associated level 6 degree apprenticeship:
Product Design & Development Engineer [Level 6]
Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
The Astute class will equip the Royal Navy with its largest and most capable generation of attack submarines. We are responsible for the design, build, test and commissioning of these state-of-the-art vessels. In total, seven boats will make up the fleet, each weighing a mighty 7,400 tonnes.
Dreadnought is the successor to the Vanguard class of nuclear deterrent submarines. We will deliver four submarines to the Royal Navy, with the first submarine entering service in the early 2030s. Dreadnought is widely considered to be one of the world's most complex engineering challenges.
We have sites in Barrow-in-Furness, Filton, Frimley, Ash Vale, Broad Oak and Weymouth, and we pride ourselves on employing the best professionals around. Join us and you'll be part of something important; something you can be proud of.
