Placements Overview

How do you make a start on your career?

Whether you want to join us for a summer or spend a year getting under the skin of what we do, one of our placements could suit you. You’ll pick up hands-on experience, technical knowledge and transferable skills, not to mention plenty of new contacts. Think of it as your chance to explore.

Summer Students

If you want to find out exactly how business and engineering go together and gain some invaluable real-world experience at the same time, consider a summer internship. You’ll work on live projects alongside experienced engineers, contributing as much to our business as you learn from it.

If you have the opportunity to work for us over 2 summers we can consider you coming back, staying in the same team or working in another area to broaden your knowledge. We have opportunities for students studying a wide range of subjects so please visit our apply here section to find out more.

We are looking for students who want to work at the end of their 2nd year of a 3 year degree course, 2nd and 3rd year of a 4 year degree (and equivalent for a 5 year degree) as well as those students completing their undergraduate degree before starting their MSc. Unfortunately we do not offer graduates a summer placement.

 

Year in industry placements

For those of you looking for an extended period of work experience to supplement your degree with professional development. This is an opportunity to gain invaluable experience taking a Year in Industry, our current opportunities include Mechanical, Design, Environmental, Ergonomics, Aerospace, Economics and Systems. All alongside a competitive salary and tutoring support from our staff. And if your year’s a success, we’ll invite you to apply to one of our undergraduate programmes.

Applications are welcomed from undergraduate students who are in their second or third year of a four or five year accredited engineering masters degree. You’ll have good A-level results in maths and science subjects. The placement will be based at one of our ten offices in the UK. Suitable university courses would include systems engineering.
