As a systems engineer, you will work in a holistic, multi-disciplinary role, focusing on the bigger picture and bridging gaps between disciplines.
As a systems engineer, you will work in a holistic, multi-disciplinary role, focusing on the bigger picture and bridging gaps between disciplines – such as software or mechanical design- by using your knowledge of the system to provide appropriate information to each area of engineering.
Throughout the different stages of the lifecycle, you will take the lead in systems integration and testing, qualification and acceptance. As well as the technical aspects of the projects, you will also consider important factors such as schedules, costs, training and concerns.
Graduates will also be provided with the opportunity to experience a broad range of complex equipment and systems at different stages of the engineering lifecycle.
To apply, you’ll need to be on course for achieving a 2:2 Bachelor’s degree in a STEM subject. In addition, you must be eligible to work in the UK and be able to successfully achieve security clearance.
Our Submarines business has been safely delivering world class submarines to the UK Royal Navy for more than a century.
Today we are the prime contractor in the Astute programme and the UK’s only designer and builder of nuclear powered submarines – one of the world’s most complex engineering challenges. The first three submarines in the class, HMS Astute, HMS Ambush and HMS Artful, are now in service with the Royal Navy and the final four Astute class submarines are at various stages of construction at the Barrow site.
We are also the industrial lead for the Dreadnought programme, the Royal Navy’s next generation of nuclear deterrent submarines. Construction of the first of four submarines, named Dreadnought, began last year
Our Submarines business employs approximately 8,700 people and in 2017 we spent around £700m with over 700 suppliers
