connect knowledge and experience across our global network of experts to help clients solve their most
complex challenges. From high-performance buildings and infrastructure, to resilient communities and
environments, to stable and secure nations, our work is transformative, differentiated and vital.
AECOM is one of the world’s largest professional engineering consultancies, bringing a comprehensive
portfolio of building services and engineering skills to projects encompassing all types of building and
use from World Class Sporting Venues through to Commercial Properties, Healthcare & Research,
Hotels, Industrial & Manufacturing, and Infrastructure both in the UK and increasingly overseas.
Building services engineers work closely with the design team to ensure the projects we create together
sustainably perform to the brief and budget. Increasingly we work with our other internal business lines
such as Architecture, Environment, Transportation, and our own Project Managers to provide a one stop
solution to our clients. If you can bring passion and flair to our work, have a real interest in improving
the built environment and want to now apply your engineering skills to the real world then we want to
hear from you.
Mechanical Engineering - The quality of a building’s internal environment plays a significant role in
determining its fitness for the purpose for which it was designed. The mechanical engineer by the
application of modern control technology allied to energy efficient heating, ventilation and airconditioning
systems, allows occupants to vary conditions within the building although this all starts with
working with the architect to ensure the buildings form is sufficiently thermally efficient to enable energy
targets to be met or exceeded.
Electrical Engineering - We deliver expert thinking to drive efficient solutions for High and low voltage
power supplies, utilities, standby generation, UPS, resilient systems, small power, fire alarms, security,
lighting and power. We pay attention to critical systems and resilience levels.
Public / Environmental Health Engineering - Water is life. Energy and water efficient solutions are
delivered for hot and cold water systems, solar thermal, sprinklers, drainage systems, water treatment,
fire suppression and irrigation systems as well as sophisticated water reclaim and recycling systems for
optimum water conservation and Sustainable Drainage Solutions (SuDS)/Water Sensitive Urban Design
(Within Building Engineering we are also looking for specialists in IT, Security, CFD/Building Physics,
Fire, Lighting, Building Structures, Façade Engineering & Acoustics.)
When a graduate starts with us we pair them with an experienced engineer who will guide and mentor
them through their initial period working on live projects.
The following description lists a fairly typical approach to foundational training in your discipline;
however, business needs, project task availability, and your training interests will also influence the
scope and order of training. For your first year you will learn the following skills:
Our Graduate Development Programme (GDP) along with our huge scope of projects across the globe,
will challenge and inspire you to make a real difference to the world we live in. Our programmes form a
core part of our business strategy globally, designed to develop the best talent across numerous
disciplines to lead our business into the future. We have over 1,000 graduates on our programmes
across the UK & Europe, from over 30 different disciplines, each and every one of them making a
tangible difference to the environment we all live & work in.
We will provide you with all the tools and support you need to achieve your professional development
ambitions, including chartership with the relevant international professional institution – where we have
graduates working towards over 30 professional institutions in the UK. We demand the highest
standards and expect our graduates to pass their professional review first time. You will be assigned a
mentor to support & guide your development, and undertake regular training modules throughout the
programme. There will be on-the-job and classroom training where required, and the opportunity to work
on live client projects, with significant multi-disciplinary exposure
