What will I be doing?

As a Graduate 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. This will include undertaking the following tasks:
  • 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. Placements will be structured and tailored to provide exposure to the different career paths within engineering.
  • You will also be actively seeking and incorporated and/or Chartered status with a professional engineering body
