Industrial Design Summer Internship

Your challenge

The type of work we do ranges from early concept developments to help understand opportunities through to detailed designs and help with implementation and launch.

Design at PA Consulting Group

Our work includes physical product design and development, interface design and graphics development. Somewhat uniquely our group works hand in hand with scientists, engineers and management consultants which makes for an interesting and diverse working environment. Most of the design work we do is based in our office just outside Cambridge, but you may also need to visit our London site or other sites in the UK or overseas.  

Your role in Design

Over 8-10 weeks, you’ll work within the design and innovation team and help design products and services across a broad range of sectors including Medical, Consumer, Transport, Defence & Security and Communications. As a member of a growing team you'll assist in product development for our clients.
